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

    Pros

    The technology is outstanding at ASML. People want to contribute at a high level. ASML as good training programs for learning the tools.

    Cons

    If you aren't Dutch, it can take some time to get used to the culture and get to know people. If you are going to spend any time in the Netherlands, I recommend learning Dutch. Even though the Dutch know English quite well, it helps the working relationship to know the language (same as in any other country).

    Pros

    The co-workers are smart and the relationships are great. The managers respect the employees. flexible work time. Provide free four dinners.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. The pressure from customer is very high. Many coworkers are not from CS background and the projects are poorly managed.

    Advice to Management

    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.

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

    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.
