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

Pros

Challeging work where one can learn a lot. KLA is a market leader with an engineering driven culture. It is leading edge, while at the same time able to deliver strong financial results. The chalenges to maintain itself on the leading edge are immense, especially while achieving consistent economic value to its shareholders.

Cons

It is hard work, so it may be difficult for many. The culture is results driven, so those who feel hard work is enough will not succeed. If you cannot deliver results, be passionate about what you, work well in teams and persuade others, be relentless in your pursuit of excellence, and deal with frank feedback, this will be a serious con for you.

Advice to Management

Continue to drive technology consistent with Moore's law. Deal with a consolidating customer base by leveraging your expertise and creating collaborative relationships. Nuture the supply chain to help gain competitive advantage

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

    Pros

    Very easy to do the bare minimum
    Can easily take credit for other peoples work
    Can leave at before 5 pm since no one is around
    For those who are not interested in a career but just to get a salary, it is a good deal

    Cons

    Really poor low level and senior IT managers who have been here for years
    Zero innovation and extreme complacency
    Demoralized workers who have severe trust issues

    Advice to Management

    There have been universal complaints on this forum and at work but nothing ever changes so advice would be moot. People have already realized a long time ago that doing the bare minimum and just taking a salary is the best they can hope for here. IT management have absolutely no incentive to improve. They've been here for years and have continually acted in their own interests or unethically. No one trusts anything they say. Fall in line or get out. That's the motto
