Nice place to work although chronically understaffed in many supporting departments.

I have been working at Cymer

Pros

Successful within the industry. Innovative products. Nice building.

Cons

Company does not invest in infrastructure or technology outside of product areas. No professional development opportunities. l Has a tendency to hire from outside rather than grow and promote from within.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

. Too much emphasis and reliance on metrics reporting rather than actually talking with employees to find out what is going on.

    Pros

    Cymer has all the makings for a great company. It's a locally founded technology company. Strong market position and good business fundamentals. Beautiful campus and buildings, good benefits, wonderful workforce. Many talented, remarkable scientists.

    Cons

    Zero empowerment for most managers and technologists. Top executives exhibit a know-it-all mentality, even though almost all are not technologists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace COO with a strong technical executive and one with charisma to motivate and encourage the organization.

    Put emphasis on encouraging risk-taking and push decisions down into organization.

    Reduce number of VPs by one-half. Far too many VPs for a company of Cymer's size.

    Very dynamic and exciting place to work, and the sense of contribution of society's technology advancement is very real.

    Pros

    Nice office environment -- building won architectural awards.
    Innovative and smart coworkers.
    Can-do attitude of team members and management.
    Industry and market leading company.

    Cons

    Extremely cyclical industry.
    One main product contributes to revenue so far.
    Too dependent on a few main customers who are much larger than Cymer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance praise and criticism.
    Positive feedback or celebration of wins are too rare.
    Reinstate quarterly bonuses.
    More carrots, less stick.
