Consulting Senior Software Architect (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – October 19, 2018
Management has highly focused goals for resolving problem issues but does not have a well focused plan to achieve those goals. Department meetings serve to assign problem resolution responsibilities to each engineer. However, management is not versed on the current technology needed to solve the issues in the dated code.
If your department is responsible and has the goal as the highest issue, you will be able to contribute your ideas to the solution. Otherwise, archaic and possibly non-implementable solutions will be forced on the team and failure will result.
Desire to be highly competitive, solid interest in finding solutions
Department politics, archaic computing hardware, inter-department communications
Pre-Sales Demo Applications Manager (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – October 3, 2018
Change is coming to KLA and to all the semiconductor industry. The design rules for semi-conductors are running out of steam, and this will make optical inspection somewhat challenging to meet the needs of the coming technology nodes. The industry as a whole maybe poorly positioned to to drive the coming technology needs and as such there might be a paradigm shift in the works over the next 5 years. KLA is progressively trying to diversify there product portfolio to include non inspection strategies and non semi strategies, but only time will tell if these changes will help KLA weather the storm.

Multimedia Producer (contractor) (Former Employee) – Milpitas, CA – September 11, 2017
A typical day as the Multimedia Producer in the Corporate Learning Center from 2008 - 2010 involved generally being praised by the larger team and associated management and partners for my work, but whatever I did was never good enough for my boss, so it was a toxic work environment where I never felt like I job was safe day to day nor did I even know what I was going to be doing day to day.
