I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible work structure, good work/life balance. Keeping employees healthy is promoted; onsite gym and wellness workshops.

Cons

Not much room for growth, frequent middle management changes and restructuring make it difficult to set meaningful yearly objectives. Working from home is frowned upon, even though all the technology is in place to make it possible.

Advice to Management

Increase opportunities for growth at the individual contributor level.
