    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People make do with what they can
    Salaries are above average
    Don't need to excel

    Cons

    Really poor lower level IT management who lack ethics, are poor at their job and play politics. Someone mentioned rank and file are ok, but in reality the good people left a long time ago and everyone knows it. Difficult to hire new people so the old guard stay behind and make it difficult for everyone else

    Advice to Management

    It's not training that's needed, the really poor lower level IT managers need to shipped out. But they've been around for so long that they know how to play the game. Really poor company and since you refuse to listen, it will only get worse

    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart, dedicated employees with integrity who work really really hard for the company. Really competent dedicated and indispensable employees

    Cons

    KLA used be the leader in compensation and used to boast about compensating employees better that other companies ---hasn't been that way for long time (5+ years). Now, each time exec management looks for what other comp can they cut (like last years RSU's).

    Advice to Management

    What's the point? How about you start "doing" instead of just nonsensical "talk" or perception. How about you start following the company values of HFC and integrity, etc...instead of just preaching it to the "masses". And those BRAVO points---what a ridiculous pile of plastic rubbish---so insulting, cringe-worthy. How about real compensation and real bonuses---you know the type you get.
