    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Milpitas, CA (US)

    I worked at KLA-Tencor full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great technology
    - Lots of PhDs , very talented engineers,
    - Stable business with high market share
    - Good work-life balance

    Cons

    - Its difficult to be promoted internally to management
    - Folks have left and then joined back at two or three levels higher in a couple of years, while internally even after 'walking on water' one may move up 1 level that too if one has a strong manager.
    - Can be political like any other large organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus on growing employees and making sure inequities are avaoided.
