busy, and always learning more new things everyday. You never do what your duties are the more you learn the more things you have to do and the more your job is secure

Pros: good experience.
Cons: bad apples ruin a good thing.
Brake Depot made its debut on the "Turko files" on KUSI news. Apparently this company got busted for selling products consumers didn't need on their vehicle. ouch!!!!

good facilities and friendly environment but no future in regular work
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CaliforniaJune 28, 2014
Pros: picnics, free drinks; coffee and tea, and friendly atmosphere
Cons: health benefits, advancement, and job security are very poor.
Lots of frustrated employees when it comes to getting hired as a regular. Most employees; 70 percent are temporary workers. Some have been waiting to get hire as long as 3 to 4 years. Since most are just a temp., there are no benefits; health, sickly leave, etc., as well as no promotions.

Cymer as it is
Windows 7 Packaging Engineer (Current Employee), San Diego, CAMay 25, 2014
Pros: a lot of hr activitites that involves workers and families.
Cons: management style needs improvement
Nice little company in RB, got bought by ASML, a Dutch company. The transition was a mess however they're the only of the few company in this business niche so I think they will be fine in the long run. Made a lot of friends there a long the way.

Tech Writer contractor (Former Employee), San DiegoApril 2, 2014
Pros: professional, friendly, and supportive
Cons: merger/acquisition challenges at this time
Cymer is not about micro-management. Even going thru the acquisition, they have managed to keep from getting weird. A typical day at work is productive, and yet breaks are encouraged. Co-workers are professional and yet will take the time for a friendly chat.

Overall Okay
Mechanical Design Engineer (Current Employee), San Diego, CAJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: great coworkers, reasonable hours, good benefits, excellent job security
Cons: unorganized management, asml's little puppets, few a-hole managers that will ruin your day
You can either have too much work or too little work. Sometimes you are left without guidance and must find projects on your own. Great company for integration/test engineers. As well as System and controls engineers. Not so much for mechanical engineers looking to do mechanical design. Above average pay for San Diego. Great people to work with. EUV will be here for a long time and there is more than enough work to go around. Job security doesn't get any more secure.

Company Hires for three month contract spands
DPG Sr. Industrial Engineer (Former Employee), San Diego, CAMarch 18, 2013
Pros: the onsite cafe' for lunch
Cons: no group approval
First company I worked for that reviewed you every three months for availablity to work for them. Work as a contract for QualStaff to Cymer. The communication controls where interesting for one did not know if you had a job; very stressful. One would do their best but the culture did not allow for contract indiviuals to be part of the goal growth.

Disorganized
Engineer (Current Employee), San DiegoSeptember 28, 2012
Pros: potential for interesting work
Cons: arrogant upper management
While their products and work can be interesting and rewarding at times, their upper management is totally unaware of the effort it takes to get them to work and rather than entrusting their first-line managers and workers to provide bottoms-up subtasks and schedules, they simply place arbitrary deadline on ill defined tasks and expect them to be met.

Cymer has a lot of good, smart, hardworking people in their rank-and-file but unfortunately they do not always get the respect and appreciation they deserve.

Executive Assistant experience in a high-tech environment
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CASeptember 6, 2012
Pros: learning about technology, salary and benefits
Cons: lack of cooperation within the company
I provided administrative support to the Sr. VP of Marketing, and the Sr. Director of Strategic Marketing. I compiled data and assisted in creating product marketing presentation and media packages. I managed two calendars in a fast-pace environment. Each day I would be responsible for typical administrative duties, but also work on larger scope projects. The hardest part of working for this company is that there wasn't a lot of cross-organizational cooperation at the time, causing many people to be frustrated. I don't know why. I continued to remain positive and contribute my highest level of support under all circumstances. I enjoyed learning about technology.
