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.
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
Executive Assistant experience in a high-tech environment
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – September 6, 2012
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.
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.
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.
Human Resources Program Representative (Current Employee) – San Diego – October 18, 2012
Surrounded by intelligent, hard working individuals who are all dedicated to their jobs. As a recent grad, I've been able to network and meet upper management as well as attend events specifically for recent grads.
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.
Engineer (Current Employee) – San Diego – September 28, 2012
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.
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.
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.
