Great exposure to engineers and semiconductor industry
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – San Diego – October 6, 2015
A great place and my first exposure to the semiconductor industry. Had a great opportunity to meet people through various depts and learn how they help achieve Cymers goals. A vast majority of the end-users are remote and in different countries, which brought interesting obstacles that were hurdled.
Accounts Payable Supervisor (Former Employee) – San Diego – September 22, 2015
Fun work place with very supportive management. Very aggressive company if your up for the task. I really enjoyed working with my fellow employees. The greatest part is we are a team and everyone works very well together.
Best group of people to work with. Great pay and benefits.
Operations Planner (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – August 31, 2015
The most stressful and nauseating places a person could work at. Everyday is a new panic. They would rather go to meetings and point fingers, than get things changed. Thank yous are few and far between, if you do fix something.
People are nice
Panic, epic amounts of stress, no continuity, blame game experts, and issues go under a rug.
Embedded Engineer (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 7, 2015
It was a great company to work for all the tasks where easy to me since i do enjoy talking to people and providing great customer service. I learned how to be professional and communicate in a more business environment.
good facilities and friendly environment but no future in regular work
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – San Diego, California – June 28, 2014
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.
picnics, free drinks; coffee and tea, and friendly atmosphere
health benefits, advancement, and job security are very poor.
Windows 7 Packaging Engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – May 25, 2014
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.
a lot of hr activitites that involves workers and families.
Tech Writer contractor (Former Employee) – San Diego – April 2, 2014
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.
Mechanical Design Engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 29, 2014
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.
great coworkers, reasonable hours, good benefits, excellent job security
unorganized management, asml's little puppets, few a-hole managers that will ruin your day
