    I worked at ASML full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The technology is outstanding at ASML. People want to contribute at a high level. ASML as good training programs for learning the tools.

    Cons

    If you aren't Dutch, it can take some time to get used to the culture and get to know people. If you are going to spend any time in the Netherlands, I recommend learning Dutch. Even though the Dutch know English quite well, it helps the working relationship to know the language (same as in any other country).

    I worked at ASML

    Pros

    Stable, Fair enough work-life balance

    Cons

    Many times PMs don't have a good clue about the sensible direction.They just head towards some empty promises from the customers. You spend a lot of time and efforts for nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have a better strategic planning, and appropriate the resources accordingly

    Pros

    As the dominant player in lithography equipment market. The job opportunity in ASML is stable. It will get less impact from down turns.

    Cons

    This is an European company, so fewer bonus and useless employee stock purchasing plan. It is hard to advance on the career ladder too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People in US should get a chance of rotation so that we can have an idea of what is going on in headquarter.
