    Pros

    Benefits are above average. HR seems decent but some of the more junior HR can go for etiquette classes.

    Cons

    Teamwork is a lark in KLA. All the political back-stabbing and garbage in garbage out makes it one of the worst places anyone would have the ill luck to work in. This is especially the case for the Materials department which has double digit attrition rate.

    Additionally, some of the procurement practices are dubious especially in the Indirect portion. A proper independent 3rd party audit would weed out all the discrepancies happening there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be thankful you have a niche market. When the time comes when you lose your edge, the rats will abandon this rickety ship. By far, one of the worst places any fresh graduate can work in.

    Pros

    Area of work is quite unusual. Decent pay. Good for job-seekers who want to work in their core areas.

    Cons

    Extremely unfair interview process. It seemed that either the interviewer is not competent enough or has already decided to go for a particular candidate and the interview is just a sham.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must have a fairer and transparent interview process to keep accomplished candidates interested in your company. At least try be frank with the candidate regarding why he/she cannot be hired.
