I have been working at Cymer full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Culture - Great focus on employees and their families. Multiple events are hosted each year to celebrate employees' hard work and bring people together. The company has a strong desire to give back to the community that is clearly shared by its employees with a ton of volunteer hours each year.

Management - They are genuinely interested in your career path and progress. They offer a guiding hand without micromanaging and hard work is definitely recognized and rewarded.

Coworkers - I really enjoy the people I work with in my department and at the company in general. Everyone is very nice and most are easy to work with to accomplish common goals.

Cons

Slow adoption to current software and hardware systems.

    I have been working at Cymer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The machines are cutting edge, and it's possible to get some good hands-on experience in their labs. Cymer is a diverse place, the people are smart and there is a generally casual attitude (jeans are normal attire for engineers.) There are opportunities here if you are interested in management roles. Cymer tends to pay well.

    Cons

    Cymer (and ASML, the parent company) rushes their designs too much. The majority of the 'real' design roles have disappeared from Cymer, and are handled by ASML in the Netherlands. I wouldn't recommend Cymer for design engineering experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and design a better product before sending it to customers. Thank you for paying your employees well.

    I have been working at Cymer full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technologies, work colleagues and educational opportunities. Company celebrations and moral building cookouts.

    Cons

    Wouldn't need moral building cookouts if the company respected and valued its employees. "What have you done for me lately" mentality from management. Unfair management supported by HR department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ASML needs to clean house and eliminate Cymer's director and senior director level. ASML already has superior directors making Cymer directors redundant and costly
