    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits.
    Good R&D and Software Development. There is opportunity for growth in various other departments in the company. Best products in the world with great R&D work done globally. Very good software engineering teams along with hardware development teams globally. Good compensation and work-life balance. Management understands the needs of employees in terms of family life and emergencies. Professional IT teams.

    Cons

    Inexperienced Marketing trying to run the show. No respect for employees. Abusive towards everyone. Constant threat of getting fired every day. Too much politics. The flat and declining business seems to be OK with the business unit managers. The division in Austin runs without any marketing strategies, sales strategies, pricing strategies and development strategies. They are trying to ruin a business successfully developed by its founder Chris Mack. No one seems to know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Please spend some time to at least see what some employees and the finle division is going through.
