Customer Service Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at KLA-Tencor

ProsWhen things are slow, there is a lot of paid free time. Professional environment. Employees communicate well and respect others moral standards. Willing to help the employee when they get into a bind. Decent benefits.

ConsUnpredictable environment as with any technology based company. When times are tough, benefits are the first to go. Big company mentality where the stock holders take precedence over the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure you reward your employees for going above and beyond their expected duties. Not just a pat on the back, give them some soft of incentive to keep them motivated.
