    I worked at ASM International NV full-time

    Pros

    Not much to say about Pros, nothing

    Cons

    ASM has turned into a hostile work environment and has laid off good people as a scare tactic for those that remain. Until changes are made, ASM is a sinking ship.

    Former Contractor - Field Service Engineer in Hillsboro, OR

    I worked at ASM International NV for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits were competitive with industry norms, although constantly trying to play catch-up with competing vendors.

    Cons

    Management often seemed skewed away from performers to favor "yes" men. Long hours, with vacation days scheduled on a first-come/first-serve basis. Reviews/raises given on a curved assessment.

    I worked at ASM International NV full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Hands down the best health benefits I’ve had ever. Really good coverage for employee and family. Excellent opportunity to learn cutting edge technology. ASM is the go-to supplier for HKMG technology at any fab in the world. Compensation is competitive and matches industry standards. Culture can vary from team to team but if you’re in a good one, you’ll enjoy every day at work. At least their HR doesn’t post fake 5 Star reviews like most of other low rated companies. Semiconductor industry is not for the faint of heart. I’ve experienced way more stressful and longer days at previous companies. To remain competitive in an industry that depends on accuracy at the Angstrom level, you just have to put in a lot of hours to make things work and requirements from customers change each day.

    Cons

    The workforce seems very disengaged with senior management. Most technical decisions are made by non technical folks who don’t understand long term ramifications of their actions. Some of the software is still written in languages rendered obsolete at other companies. Makes very difficult to make changes. Big disconnect between all different ASM sites in the world.
