    Pros

    Cymer is working on some of the most advanced technology you will find anywhere. you will never have a problem with work being boring. Hard work and talent does not go overlooked.

    Cons

    Semiconductor industry in general can be very demanding And cymer is definately not an exception to that. at times it can become a little overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a little to much management at the vp/director level. Could run a little more efficiently by consolidating some of these positions and bringing in more technical people.

    I worked at Cymer full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They were great in the early days. Lots of golden handcuffs in the form of stock options. They were all cut out and then in came the Applied folks. Went down hill through the Pascal days.

    Cons

    Now they are just another semi place with way to many mid and upper management.
    They need to be spoon feed information instead of getting in there and working the issues. Spent more time doing weekly reports than working. They do not implement the best designs, only the ones that barely meet spec and change as little as possible. Their lasers could be much better if they wanted to do the engineering and let the engineers do the work. They waste a lot of material.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, hire the best and get out of the way. Leave them to do the job and you go around to feed the info upstairs.
