A fine place to work.

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

Pros

Well 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.

Cons

IT 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.

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

    Pros

    People are very friendly and understanding. Great work atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    Don't expect to get hired permanent if you are a contractor. There are folks that have been working 10+ years as a contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire your long standing contractors and hire more IT support folks.

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

    Pros

    Just administrative work only in IT. Absolutely no one cares about talent or improvement or doing the right thing for the Business

    Cons

    No focus on keeping existing IT staff
    Outsourcing is the norm, but leads to cheap resources that need constant hand holding
    Senior and lower level IT management and CIO are completely ineffective and detested, but people keep quiet to keep their jobs
    There's really no one left to be honest. Everyone just does busy work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    So many people have left IT. The only ones who stay are afraid to leave or don't have the skills to go anywhere else. That atmosphere of fear that you perpetuate isn't healthy
