    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very kind, understanding and decent coworkers. Everyone is willing to work longer and harder just to help their fellow coworkers (everyone, that is, except some managers).

    Cons

    It all depends on your manager (and whether they like you) on whether your experience with KT will be good or bad. People can be managers without the skills to be a manager, so if you are stuck with one of these types of managers, then work could be constant battle. Many Managers lack transparency and say they are going do something and do something else instead.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to your employees. Don't just act like you are listening. Say what you do and do what you say. Your employees are your greatest asset, so make sure that they know this with a little acknowledgement. Employees work better when they feel that they are a part of a team working towards a common goal, rather than one where each employee is set their own separate goals and cannot share these goals with the other team members. Back up your employees. Think of your team, not just your career advancement opportunities.
