    I have been working at ASML full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of its research and manufacturing sections is located in Wilton, CT, on the Eastcoast of US. ASML has its main section in Dutch. The colleagues are quite nice and creative. I enjoy the corporate culture in this company. Another thing that I appreciate this company brings me is the soft skills trainings, which is very helpful for personal development as well.

    I think it is a good company to develop a nice career path.

    Cons

    You can be confused at the management structure at the very beginning, especially as a new employee. But gradually, I start to figure out the advantages of current managing structure. This can help company keep productive while value people at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to thank my GL and PL first and I do think he did a very job on guiding people as well as controlling projects. But I heard from other departments or teams that not all the managers have the same wise management style, which would depress and stress out some of our smart and hard-working employees. Please take some actions to have the not-so-good managers to learn from the very good managers.

    I have been working at ASML full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Work with highly skilled and intelligent people
    - World class engineering
    - Good benefits, above average time off
    - Very receptive to new ideas
    - Solid outlook
    - For a semiconductor company, very stable

    Cons

    - Planning is ALWAYS overoptimistic
    - Work can be very stressful at times
    - Communication can always be better

    Advice to Management

    Everyday management: Get to know your people better, and try to help them with some of the chaos of life at ASML. You have very talented people that will kill themselves to deliver. You sometimes need to save them from themselves!

    Upper management: Very good vision overall. But please if you make broad policy changes and initiatives, you better support them or else you lose trust.
