KLA-Tencor Employee

"Very poorly managed company. They micromanage their employees, reprimand them for doing their job, turn employees against each other, they create a horrible and stressful working environment. They are incredibly dishonest. Pay and benefits are a bait and switch. There is nothing redeemable about KLA Group."

"KLA is an old school semi-conductor capital equipment company. They are very good at the engineering required in putting together complex systems, but are a bit behind the curve in adapting to latest technology trends in SW and AI. It is a good place to work to contribute to solving challenging problems in a stable environment with the downside of collaborating with teams across the globe."

KLA-Tencor Employee

"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."
