I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Challeging work where one can learn a lot. KLA is a market leader with an engineering driven culture. It is leading edge, while at the same time able to deliver strong financial results. The chalenges to maintain itself on the leading edge are immense, especially while achieving consistent economic value to its shareholders.

Cons

It is hard work, so it may be difficult for many. The culture is results driven, so those who feel hard work is enough will not succeed. If you cannot deliver results, be passionate about what you, work well in teams and persuade others, be relentless in your pursuit of excellence, and deal with frank feedback, this will be a serious con for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to drive technology consistent with Moore's law. Deal with a consolidating customer base by leveraging your expertise and creating collaborative relationships. Nuture the supply chain to help gain competitive advantage
