    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Smart and dedicated people at the rank and file level

    Cons

    Political and ineffective senior management led by a CIO who is a legend in his own mind.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house- get fresh blood from outside. The IT directors are all politically motivated and insecure- that is why they are not able to leave and find another job even though they have tried- the good ones have all left and are doing really well outside.

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

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement if you are a go-getter and willing to put in the effort required. If you like technology and innovation, this place has it all. Company truly values and rewards top performers.

    Cons

    Have to ride through the peaks and valleys of semiconductor cycles in a low-volume niche market. Service group is separate from Product groups which can lead to misaligned goals and financial incentives.

    Advice to Management

    Pocket's of strong work-life balance, but not wide spread.
