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

    Assembly Technician (Former Employee)
    Wilton, CT

    ProsGood team leaders, engineers, and fellow workers.

    Cons8S system is inefficient, hindering technicians' ability to streamline work flow.
    Most contractors, through most agencies = zero benefits.

    Get in, use up company benefits and get out!

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Wilton, CT

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

    ConsSalaries 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 Senior ManagementGet 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ASML - a bunch of wonderful people amking the best of an impossible situation!

    EC Writer (Former Employee)
    Wilton, CT

    ProsLeading-edge technology in optics and microcircuit fabrication.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhy 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?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

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

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Wilton, CT

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

    ConsEngineers are cogs in the system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpose 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....

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Interesting technical work in an outdated dull environment

    Design Engineer (Current Employee)
    Wilton, CT

    ProsExcellent hours
    Intelligent coworkers
    Good compensation
    Good benefits

    ConsThe work environment is stuck in 1985. My work space is a giant, windowless room packed with cubicles where the colors are various shades of dull gray. Other rooms have some windows, but the same cubicle/color scheme persists throughout.

    Suburban location

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the times! The entire semiconductor industry has moved past this anachronistic company culture onto something more dynamic and exciting. If the company wants to hire more young people like they say they do, they better act, and FAST

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Senior Mechanical Engineer

    Senior Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee)
    Wilton, CT

    ProsLarge market share in the Semiconductor space

    ConsHigh Turnover rate
    Underutilize employees
    Too large to function efficiently
    Management doesn't work for the good of the employee
    Instead of working for the good of the product, everyone cares mainly about themselves which creates a lot of internal politics and people only working for their own self interest.
    It takes 4 months to go through the new employee orientation where it should take 2-3 weeks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds a full overhaul of the documentation, management, and human resources systems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
