Pros

Great place to gain diverse experience in the semiconductor industry. The dominate position that KLA-Tencor holds in it's core product lines ensures solid exposure to the key players in chip manufacturing. It is also a good place to gain global experience, with an emphasis on Asia.

Cons

Workload is quite high which drives a fairly dry, non personal work environment. The workload also makes it difficult to manage work/life balance. It also leaves little time for managers to work with employees on career development and coaching. On the other hand some of this is the nature of the industry, and much of it is a direct effect of the current economic situation the world is in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more frequent updates to employees regarding the state of the industry and our position within it.

    Pros

    The company has great technology and very good people. KT is a market leader in nearly every market segment in which we compete. We are a global company in a critical industry. We are well positioned to navigate this challenging environment and succeed when the overall business environment improves.

    The company has expanded into adjacent markets such as green technology (solar and HBLED) and will be able to leverage the historical strengths as we move into new markets.

    Cons

    As a market leader a lot is expected of the teams at KT. We are also compete in a challenging and cyclical industry that requires a lot of determination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's critcal that we work together in these challenging times.

    Pros

    The flexible work schedule is nice. You typically know what is on the ajenda a day in advance and can schedule activities around work. This is a Field Service job so some travel is required. Probably 4 weeks a year at most. In Dallas most of your work will be supporting fabs in the DFW area. ESPP. Profit sharing when the company is profitable. Car allowance is nice. Internet is paid for up to $50. Company provides laptop and blackberry.

    Cons

    Lack of exposure to equipment can make OJT very slow and difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a good man power formula for the company that works in good times and bad times. Layoffs hurt morale of the employees.
