    I have been working at ASM International NV

    Pros

    The Benefits are good and plenty.

    Can't choose your own shift. Everything is under contract.

    Lost in the sauce...

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at ASM International NV full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    As a US Veteran, ASM provides a great introduction to the semiconductor manufacturing industry and the major players within the business. With no prior experience within the installation of their products, the organization trusted my skillsets obtained within the military to complete numerous installation projects. Decent pay Great Health Benefits Flexible Schedule Talented People Lots of overtime

    Cons

    The amount of travel associated with the position was not proportioned correctly amongst the installation engineers, which led to exhaustion and employee dissatisfaction. Smaller Company Not much space to move up Training needs work Excessive Travel for position

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management was nowhere to be found and should play a more visible role to the junior employees. Mission was there, yet the vision was not. Employees felt out of the loop and unsure of their jobs. If ASM was not selling process tools, there was a sense of insecurity amongst all.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at ASM International NV full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, HR never loses sight that employees are people, not just resources. Great people to work with, company is supportive of internal transfers with a wide range of positional responsibilities.

    Cons

    Typical large corporation confusion. Lack of clear company vision at worker level. Too much energy spent putting out fires versus proactively preventing them. Wheels of change can be very slow with regard to updating procedures, processes and methods. Company systems are comprehensive, but utterly un-intuitive with next to useless users manuals.

    Advice to Management

    Communication. Dissemination of company vision to all levels of employees. Too many people have no idea what the mission statement of the company is, and how their respective position directly contributes to company success, and ultimately their own. Without this clarity I see way too many people who view their job as a paycheck, not as "Part of the Team" trying to "Win the Game".

    Pros

    You are usually given enough time to get tasks done, and given proper tools to get them done. Performance appraisals are fair unless you are grossly incompetent. At times, the work itself can be interesting and challenging. You are given opportunities to become the key "go-to" person for key technologies. Opportunities for travel exist. These trips provide good opportunities to visit and spend time in foreign... lands. As an employer, ASM is very fair to its employees. Many employees have left the company, only to return a few years later.

    Cons

    No job security to speak of. When manufacturers are investing in capital equipment, ASM hires like crazy. When equipment orders dry up, lots of folks get laid off.. From a software development point of view, there is very little opportunity for design and architecture. Most of the development is maintenance activities.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to mitigate the "boom or bust" employment staffing levels. Be more proactive in developing new technology.

    Manager in Phoenix, AZ
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at ASM International NV

    Pros

    Company has leveraged a couple of good decisions in the past - buying small Finish ALD company. Now the clear industry leader in this key enabling technology.

    Cons

    Senior management is weak, and not well tuned into the needs of the company (for a medium size company). Surprisingly large culture gap between Dutch owners and American employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management can't be afraid of making key business decisions. Company needs to be better focused on what is best for the company, not just say yes to whatever customers ask for.

    I worked at ASM International NV

    Pros

    Easy going workplace Friendly demeanor encouraged

    Cons

    Management seemed oblivions toward how project I worked on should proceed forward.

    Advice to Management

    Need to leverage your talent in a better way. A large majority of employees are "twiddling their thumbs" while they wait for a real opportunity to come along.

    Pros

    Great for learning opportunities. Helpful and good team mates.Good exposure with people around the world.

    Cons

    Management in Europe is good but Singapore and Asian management sucks. Almost zero consideration for employees benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let Asian management control, they are focusing on ontime delivery only. Quality is a forgotten word for them.
