I worked at KLA-Tencor full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Great technology
- Lots of PhDs , very talented engineers,
- Stable business with high market share
- Good work-life balance

Cons

- Its difficult to be promoted internally to management
- Folks have left and then joined back at two or three levels higher in a couple of years, while internally even after 'walking on water' one may move up 1 level that too if one has a strong manager.
- Can be political like any other large organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Focus on growing employees and making sure inequities are avaoided.
