    The managers were great. But too many senior leaders left the company for other chances. The company also need to balance the CS and the application side.

    Pros

    As the dominant player in lithography equipment market. The job opportunity in ASML is stable. It will get less impact from down turns.

    Cons

    This is an European company, so fewer bonus and useless employee stock purchasing plan. It is hard to advance on the career ladder too.

    Advice to Management

    People in US should get a chance of rotation so that we can have an idea of what is going on in headquarter.
