    Pros

    You will be working on amazing technologies, with very knowledgeable colleagues, in an overall quiet and friendly atmosphere.
    I have to mention a rare thing in the industry: IT support is excellent, it allows you to focus on your day to day tasks.

    Cons

    Wilton seems unfortunately not to be 100% part of ASML. Most of the nice events, improvements, initiatives happen at other ASML sites. Wilton is just all about engineering and making modules for the rest of the group and that's it.
    Also, you chances of promotions are much higher is you end up on a project that is not canceled after a year by top management, and if you have a tendancy of complaining regularly to lower management.

    Advice to Management

    Get more of a company culture on this site, Gaifield county is a terrible and expensive place, so try to make the company a little more enjoyable with little things (free lunch, after work event, work initiatives...)
    Get more support from HR at paying attention to the potential of your non complaining employees.

    I worked at ASML full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, and good benefits.
    Great training.
    You get to work on high tech, interesting machinery. Opportunities to travel nationally and internationally.

    Cons

    1. No opportunities to grow. 2. As a vendor, which operates on the customer's site, this makes for unfavorable working conditions.

    If you're an ambitious, hard worker, looking for a long term career, you will probably not be satisfied with this position after about 3 years. On the other hand, if your straight out of college, ASML is a foot in the door to an intriguing industry.

    If you're the "less than ambitious type," this job is perfect for you, as it allows you to coast along for years with, little to no accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Promote, and promote from within the local office, to restore faith in the career tracker. Trim the fat, and trim wisely. Take interest in your employees, and really understand what it means to have their backs.

    Take regional concerns more seriously
