    I have been working at KLA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Good work environment. Option to work in many technologies.
    2. Easy to reach next-next levels if you are ready to compromise personal life.
    3. Can travel to many countries. You can rent a car and claim as much as fuel bill you want.
    4. Attrition is low for past few years due to good and stable work environment.

    Cons

    1. Minimal employee extra benefits. Outings and team lunch are rare events. No family event at all. Pure engineering company.
    2. No Travel benefits. Perdiem is lowest in the industry - $35 + 15$(actuals). Cheap hotels are booked now after recent travel policy changes.
    3. Recent poor high level management decisions in both India and global.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are not travelling for their benefits. But for the company. Please respect them and provide good facilities.
