No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

I work in IT and I can leave early and also work from home without anyone knowing what I'm doing, so that's a big perk

Cons

Having to deal with backward and unoriginal thinking and IT staff who have been here for years. Having worked at many companies in the Valley, I find that the management here and to a great degree, the worker bees are absolutely clueless. There's no talent here, with people just sticking around to earn their monthly wage

Advice to Management

get rid of the people who have been here for years. The place is being run into the ground

    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great documentation process, great senior guidance, deadlines are never unrealistic. Work-life balance is one of the best perks. Never had trouble getting time for personal reasons. Getting management to approve training was never a problem.

    Cons

    Very hard to establish yourself. Too large of a company to get recognition that will allow you to grow.


  2. "Good company but need improvement"

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

    Pros

    cool technology, high performance people. 30+ years experience in industry.
    Good education for employee's development.

    Cons

    aggressive schedule, same as most of bay area company.
    bad work-life balance for some team.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the power of management, encourage employee's development and promote/reward innovation. Bring the company's culture to real reward system, reduce the middle level management, reduce the wasting resource meetings (too many managers, too many meetings).
