    Cons

    travel for some jobs ranges between 50 and 90% so not suited for employees with young families;
    old corporate design con is that the only way up is threw lots of experience and middle management stagnates

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find 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.
