This is a great company with too few people to share the heavy load but hiring and training is starting to catch up.

Product Development Engineer (Current Employee)

I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent, talented coworkers. KT tries to build a happy, healthy environment for employees.

ConsAt times work can be high stakes, high stress and requires short notice travel.

Advice to Senior ManagementFind some way to compensate those who travel with little or no notice to customer and supplier sites to put out fires at great personal and familial sacrifice. Talented people are getting burned out and you can't afford to loose them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
