No opinion of CEO

I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

As someone said below, it's a steady paycheck. There's no real need to do much more. Everyone leaves early. There's no real commitment or expectation

Cons

It's a really poor work environment. I work in SAP and the IT managers are really as bad as people make out. No one respects them. They put so much importance on their position and rarely do what is in the best interest of the business. But as someone mentioned below, they've been here for so long that any complaints are ignored. We have lost a lot of good people and they never get replaced. I can see why

Advice to Management

Why is it so bad working here. Well take a look around and see who's left. The place has been decimated. The same poor managers still remain

    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
