    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Chances to stay and manage offshore staff
    If you enjoy the administrative side of IT with lots of unwritten policies and procedures then there are opportunities to do that

    Cons

    Chances are high that you will be working alongside IT people who are disaffected and who suffer from low morale and lack the inclination to get things done
    Poorly thought out policies and procedures which slow down customer engagement and kill motivation and innovation
    Many managers protect their own turf, play political games with roles and responsibilities and constantly exaggerate and do the bare minimum. But they are protected so they never leave and the situation just gets worse for everyone else
    Unfortunately has changed dramatically for the worst in the last few years. It's a terrible company to work for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice has been given in a multitude of surveys, meetings, focus groups, one on one sessions, group sessions. But it's wasted as no one cares and everyone suffers

    Business units good. Corp functions lacking.

    I have been working at KLA-Tencor full-time

    Pros

    Awesome challenges. Great business. Lots of opportunity. Many great people.

    Business unit leaders are great. Facing unique challenges with lots of opportunities to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Corp functions. HR is a bunch of functional silos that don't communicate. Too much politics. Not living core values.
    Within the HR group there is a lack of trust and communication. The various functions aren't working as a team and personal agendas at the VP level are creating friction and tension between the functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change values to include mutual trust and recognition. Leadership change in some corp functions.
