I worked at Cymer

Pros

Cutting edge technology, well-structured intern program, very involved projects, full involvement with a team, excellent balance of work and fun, ability to creatively implement your own ideas

Cons

Red tape, busy and fast-paced work, lack of communication between divisions, older computer software or software licensing situations that inhibit productivity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The intern program at Cymer is very well-structured and I loved being a part of it. It would be excellent to see it continue to grow.

    O.K.. Could be better, could be worse. Not complaining. We all know the job market out there- not good!

    I have been working at Cymer

    Pros

    Newer facilities, secured parking, cafeteria, some nice folks to work with, convenient location for me.

    Cons

    Organizationally it is way too top-heavy. Too many V.P.'s, Sr. Directors, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rumors swirling that a lay-off i scoming early 2012. Sales are down in DUV. Let people know early. Families are affected.
    Cut some senior level wood this time.

    Bring back the quarterly profit sharing plan; do away with the once a year plan.

    I have been working at Cymer

    Pros

    Hard work and dedication are often recognized and rewarded
    There are high expectations for everyone who works at this company, which means your co-workers are generally both competent and personable.
    Executives/Supervisors are extremely hands on and approachable
    The company understands very well that the details count and it is extremely rare to see anyone cut corners.

    Cons

    The third party companies we sometimes need to go through to order supplies are often a waste of both time and money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut out some of the middle-men who supply us when going directly to the source could save both time and money. This could streamline not only that process, but also the resulting workflows as well.
