    KLA, a company where mediocrity always trumps innovation and hard work.

    I worked at KLA-Tencor

    Pros

    Great place to be mentered fresh out of school. Growth is good for fresh grads. Is your performance average? If so this is a place you can hang your hat and do almost nothing while earning a good salary.

    Cons

    Not conducive to individuals in mid career or senior levels coming in. Company appears to treat their senior level contributors as comodity. I've noticed that the good professionals do 90% of the work and are the first to get axed during a lay-off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The best asset is your people. You can't toss out your veteran level individual contributors and expect your rookies to create or sustain world class products
