    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.

    Pros

    Very good benefits and compensation. Lots of time off. Lots of travel. Career transition services provided on layoff.

    Cons

    3/4 by 12 schedule, spanning at least one weekend day. Little or no advancement opportunity for B.S. Customer Support engineers. Layoffs happen and severance package was laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Respectable severance packages for employees laid off for business cases. Help employees advance with better mentorship.

    Pros

    Cross-Functional team work performs very well at ASML. Requests are consistently fulfilled in a timely and polite/professional manner. Cross-functional teams perform well at working together towards a common goal and achieving on-time deliverables.

    ASML recognizes the work-life balance puzzle and helps employees improve their work-life balance quality with their frequent offerings of fun group activities, and a more generous than most companies, paid time off package.

    Offers healthy dinners 4 days/week.

    Cons

    Since this is a software company, towards the end of a release cycle can be a little too busy. Overall, work load is reasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. More social break time activities at the office to further improve teams getting to know each other better.

    Pros

    Stable company = job stability. Talented team of people at Brion. Competitive compensation package as compare other software companies alike in the silicon valley. Management team listens to employee feedback and follow up with improvements. Flexible work hours for those who manages their project efficiently.

    Cons

    None I can think of

    Keep up the good work!

    Technology under development is interesting and sometimes challenging in a good way. Employees are recognized for good work.

    Building is light and bright. Food and beverages are well stocked for employees, company events are generally fun and well-planned.

    Cons

    Cubes are small. Not all jobs have clear career paths

    Pros

    Current local management is very good and accommodating given the amount of travel.

    Cons

    Training program is horrific and does not prepare employees for tasks they're expected to perform.

    Advice to Management

    Better training. Don't be surprised when customers start going crazy about lack of knowledge and skill.
