    Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer in Wilton, CT
    Former Employee - Senior Design Engineer in Wilton, CT

    I worked at ASML full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trainings, Profit sharing and that's it.

    Cons

    New managers in Mechanical Engineering are useless. Anyone who are in buddy systems are promoted quickly with zero abilities. No promotions, no sense of team work, bunch of Idiots (new managers) screwing up entire work culture and spirit of good engineers. Lot of them leaving due to bad management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick new managers out of their current jobs.

    I worked at ASML full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay (salary + profit sharing) is good

    Cons

    No layoff, but lot lot of job termination, If they couldn't find a story to get rid of you, they make up a one.
    Making up stories against others for personal interests is a common practices for some people, a culture from Netherlands?

    Layoff of permanent employees, then rehiring as temp contractors is a cheap shot.

    Former Employee - Assembly Technician in Wilton, CT

    I worked at ASML as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good team leaders, engineers, and fellow workers.

    Cons

    8S system is inefficient, hindering technicians' ability to streamline work flow.
    Most contractors, through most agencies = zero benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate 8S better to allow flexibility, balancing what helps and what hinders.

    I have been working at ASML full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work hours are great, if you get your work done, no worries.
    Stable, essentially never get fired even if you're terrible

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than market and depend too much on profit sharing, which vary too much.
    No movement even for all star employees.
    Blatant commentary from lower level for positive change goes in one ear and out the other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new HR department in Wilton. Treat all branches/employees equally. Salaries need to be boosted significantly. Develop realistic plans for movement within company, current DAP idea is worthless.

    Interesting product. Lacking in providing development opportunities for employees. Dull culture.

    Pros

    Great pay and bonuses. Interesting product if you're lucky enough to have any exposure.

    Cons

    Engineers are cogs in the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expose employees to more of the organization outside of just there current group. Unless your a senior guy, you have no exposure to whats going on in other projects across the organization... you are just an FTE....

    Pros

    Leading-edge technology in optics and microcircuit fabrication.

    Cons

    Aloof management fully bent on maximizing profits while exploiting employees as much as possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why offer advice to people who didn't ask for it, don't care to hear it, and won't use it, even if it would save their necks?
