70 KLA-Tencor Company Reviews and Ratings

"I worked for KLA-Tencor for 14+ years, and was disappointed the last few years I worked there. The culture has shifted to one in which everyone is extremely overloaded (I was doing the work of three managers). There also seems to be a lack of motivation for doing the right thing, or speaking one's mind. Some groups are better than others, and it depends largely on the management chain in any specific organization. It's generally an ok company to work for, but they don't seem to care about their employees as much as they used to, and certainly not as much as many other companies in the valley. Recently there have been an unusually large number of sr. level managers and higher moving out of the company, which is never a good sign."

"Management in RAPID division has no clue what the engineers are actually doing and responsible for. Engineers are not treated with respect, and the management has it's head in the sky."
