Cymer has great facilities and does not skimp on improvements that are needed to advance the technology. Change happens quickly, are you ready for it? Above average compensation in many cases.

Sr Management drives good people to leave
HR is completely ineffective and is a whipping post for Sr Mgmt
Turnover is high
Wellness and concern for employees
Machievellian environment

Advice to Management

Need better customer management and address the turnover issue. The greater SD area knows what it is like to work there and many won't!
