    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.

    The company is trying to care the employee. They provide many technical and soft-skill trainings.
    ASML is a stable big company in semiconductor industry.

    I am not sure but the industry can be less dynamic than Google or Apple.

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

    Pros

    People, intriguing problem, precision improvement, continuing education policy, medical, vision, dental, 401k, holiday, vacation, and shift differential.

    ASML is a great company and lithography is an interesting problem to solve. If you are interested in this aspect of the semiconductor industry there is no better lithography company.

    Cons

    Computer Based Trainings, internal fab communication between groups, and improvement approach.

    The way you are assessed is stressful. Learning various aspects of the machine is best learned hands-on or in training not during a 1 hour lecture or by computer based trainings.

    The local fab team always needs to pick up the slack for the upgrades team and install team. In addition, the part ordering process is a problem. Management has been doing a good job realizing these issues though.

    The approach to improvement seems to be very customer driven, make smaller transistors, which is why ASML commands majority of the lithography market. Unfortunately, the same software problems go unnoticed model to model and energy efficiency: energy input to energy output is ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Improve part ordering/staging and focus on efficiency improvement more and less on bigger machine = better ideology.

    There are many areas to be improved financially.

    I worked at ASML full-time (More than a year)

    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.
