    I have been working at ASM International NV full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing positive to say about ASM's vacation policy.

    Cons

    As a new employee, ASM gave me what I thought was a generous 2 weeks of vacation with an additional 1 week of flex time. Little did I know the company has mandatory plant closings 14 days out of the year. Either you use your vacation and flex time during these times, or you are not paid. This leaves me 1 whole day to use when I want. Ridiculous. On top of that, I have heard from others that you can plan vacation... months in advance, only for the company to reject your time off, stating priority business needs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making employees take our vacation when it is convenient to ASM. And honor employees vacation plans, because after 60-70 hour work weeks, we deserve the time off.

    "ASM - Great Place to Work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Engineer in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at ASM International NV full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent health benefit plan, good compensation. Challenging work at leading edge of semiconductor process technology.

    Cons

    Projects can sometimes require long hours, as is the case with most tech companies. Management helps direct employees when priorities change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep data management systems up-to-date.

    Pros

    Company has great technology and the lead in ALD, they're growing , but it's also a company in transition - they are adding capabilities / infrastructure and capacity to meet future needs, and provide for world class capability. It's a place where you can have the environment, and encouragement to do something significant in your career. Lead if you're at that stage in your career, learn, grow and build... something new if you're new to the industry People are generally pretty nice / supportive

    Cons

    It's an international company : so there is some travel or at least world wide communication for many - it's best if you know how to communicate effectively and across cultures The company isn't perfect and there are some important capabilities that are just being built - flip side is you can build those capabilities - and the environment is pretty supportive
