    Ample exposure given to engineers through travel to top tier customer sites within the first year Eg; Samsung, Intel, TSMC etc. Customer facing environment enables technical and interpersonal skill development under high pressure.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at KLA full-time

    Pros

    Good salary/perks, travel opportunity and benefits.

    Cons

    Chennai office is dominated. As a silent policy, hiring female candidates is discouraged. Women candidates are called for interview just to showcase their fake gender equality policies. No serious effort is taken to hire females just because of the assumption that they won't stay for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Try to create a proper environment for women employees.
