    Product divisions are very focused, and build specialized, high-value tools. To maintain this, KLA re-invests heavily in R&D for advancing current and building new products

    Know what you're getting yourself into - Ann Arbor

    Pros

    Great technology but they lack the necessary company core values and culture to take them to the next level.

    Cons

    If you are being offered a job with signing bonus and a relocation package I highly recommend you understand well what you are getting yourself into. If the job is not what you were looking for, you could be trapped in a job that you hate for 2 years and you can't do anything about it. I know that this is happening to some in Ann Arbor.
