I worked at KLA-Tencor as a contractor (less than an 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 have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (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

    IT is as bad as it's ever been

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

    Pros

    As someone said below, it's a steady paycheck. There's no real need to do much more. Everyone leaves early. There's no real commitment or expectation

    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 them. They put so much importance on their position and rarely do what is in the best interest of the business. But as someone mentioned below, they've been here for so long that any complaints are ignored. We have lost a lot of good people and they never get replaced. I can see why

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why is it so bad working here. Well take a look around and see who's left. The place has been decimated. The same poor managers still remain
