I have been working at Cymer

Pros

The working peope, in manufacturing are human and a joy to worth with.

Cons

Their mission statement includes: flawlessly. They are typical of what's wrong w/ corporate America.
Their employees are just commodities to be used and disposed of as necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire your temps, they are just as important as the rest of the population.

    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.
