I worked at Cymer as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Extremely intelligent people to work for. Scientists etc... The product is great and the company just went through a merger and will grow substantially in the next few years. The company will do alot of hiring, however they only hire as contract, and not as a full time permanent employee.Therefore there are no benefits involved.

Cons

Poor management, some do not know what they are doing, they have no previous experience managagin people.
Staff employees do not comunicate well with contractors, they seem to ignore contractors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn people skills...you get more output from your employees if you ask nicely instead of demanding.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
