A fine place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at KLA-Tencor as a contractor for less than a year

ProsWell run overall with vast resources available to employees (cross-training; lateral growth). Good appreciation of the individual's contribution within dept. and from upper management.

ConsIT support perhaps stretched too thin or slightly indifferent. More thoughtful service would have saved 3-4 days of precious time lost during the first week ramp-up (It's a large and distributed campus). Contract copy services were difficult to work with.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

IT is as bad as it's ever been

IT Analyst (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: As someone said below, it's a steady paycheck. There's no real need… Cons: It's a really poor work environment. I work in SAP and the IT managers are really as bad as people make out. No one respects… Advice to Senior Management: Why is it so bad working here. Well take a look around and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
