    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.
