    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time

    Pros

    This review is long overdue. KT is one of the best kept secrets in the valley.
    - Lots of smart people
    - Helpful, collaborative culture (egos left at the door)
    - Good work life balance
    - Ideas are welcome from anywhere (no one will stop you from trying to improve a process/product)
    - And something I wish more people within KT realize - there are many opportunities to move from division to division and from function to function. I've moved from apps eng through finance to supply chain. This would have required going back to school or an MBA if I had done this outside. I was given the support I needed to succeed in each of these moves.

    Cons

    - Slightly older crowd but with this comes the work-life balance and maturity of co-workers (again, very little ego)
