  1.  

    Exacting in their requirements, very technical in understanding, required strict adherence to timeframes

    Former Contractor - Senior Technical Writer

    I worked at KLA-Tencor as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company requirements induced sharpening of skills, communication, time management, research, and writing principles.

    Cons

    Rather inconsiderate of employee needs. Sometimes managers were not open to logically effective recommendatons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of a stance towards maintenance and improved production and serve. And less of a stance on geo political considerations.

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

    Pros

    - Smart People. Worked with one of the most brilliant minds out there in semiconductor equipment industry.
    - Leading Edge Technology
    - Better Job Security than other companies.
    - Challenging Environment

    Cons

    - Prepare to put in long hours
    - No career growth. If you do not hold a PhD it will take you forever to get promoted even with receiving high performance reviews each year.
    - Extreme low pay for the amount of work you have to put in. Other companies were paying 40% more for the same job. Have seen plenty of new grads leaving for something better within a few years.
    - Alot of old-timers. Do not hire that many fresh blood to help bring in new ideas and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to give back to the employees more or else all the new college graduates that you hire will leave.
