I worked at Cymer

Pros

Cymer has great facilities and does not skimp on improvements that are needed to advance the technology. Change happens quickly, are you ready for it? Above average compensation in many cases.

Cons

Sr Management drives good people to leave
HR is completely ineffective and is a whipping post for Sr Mgmt
Turnover is high
Wellness and concern for employees
Machievellian environment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need better customer management and address the turnover issue. The greater SD area knows what it is like to work there and many won't!

    Pros

    Technology leader. Pay is reasonable. Good experience for someone fresh out of school or just want to get a paycheck.

    Cons

    No career growth. Decision is made by 1-2 people at the top. Very slow and painful decision process. Extremely short term focused.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust VPs, Directors, Managers, and group leaders can make the right decisions. Given them authority. Focus on long term growth
