I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Good learning opportunity how to run complex HW+SW engineering project in a diverse global team.
Stable environment. Reasonable people.
May enjoy occasional world traveling.Cons
Slow growth. Salaries below local average.
People mostly communicate poorly with poor English. People mostly are not capable of learning and adapting to new technologies and innovations.
Virtually no feedback culture.
Poor information system.
Hard industry where low hanging fruit have been collected a long time ago - have to work 80% hard to get rest of 20%.Advice to ManagementAdvice
May I suggest to rethink standards for hiring. Use technical case interviews to see candidates in action. Refresh human resources with people who are willing and eager to learn, adapt, change. Make good communication skill as a must, starting with speaking and writing in English.Doesn't RecommendPositive Outlook
