Take and not give back
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Wilton, CTApril 27, 2018
The company is lacking leadership in manufacturing. They have temporary people working for less money no benefits then employed people. Some people have no background in manufacturing yet get hired as the ones with manufacturing stay temp. The pay is all over the place for people doing the same tasks. It’s a job but not a place for growth

Fast growing company...but maybe too fast
CS Project Management (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORApril 8, 2018
ASML is an industry leader but also has a lot to learn from other companies. The people who work here are extremely smart and being able to work with machines more complex than a space shuttle is quite a demanding task. Management is lacking in nearly every sector and this causes very bright employees to seek alternative options. There is no focus on personal growth and development of junior members because projects are so demanding and leave little time for improvement of internal processes. Management is very "old school" and needs to adapt to working with bright young minds. Many people stuck in their ways but there are initiatives to change this. It is a good company to work for; however, due to HQ in Europe and stakeholders around the globe, be prepared to work on average 10+ hours a day. This is not a 9-5 job and work-life balance is tough. ASML tries to find a balance but many people are overworked and have poor attitudes about their jobs. Regardless, the company still offers very good benefits, 3 weeks off, good salary. Overall a great company to start your career with, but you must be stubborn in your goals and constantly let your wants and needs known to your management....or else you will become just another small fish in a big pond with no advancement opportunities.
Pros
Salary, Benefits, travel, high-tech environment, smart people
Cons
Long hours, limited growth, no incentives for good performance, poor management

Demanding work environment
Benefits Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAApril 3, 2018
ASML employees work hard with long hours. In exchange, and salary and benefit are excellent. The workplace culture can be challenging as ASML continues to integrate acquired companies into their compensation, benefits and work culture. The result is a very political culture that is described internally as "mean".
There are exdptionally intelligent people doing highly technical work at ASML, but the environment is challenging.
Pros
Great salary & benefits
Cons
Harsh work environment

Great Company
Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORMarch 29, 2018
I spent the happiest years of my career at ASML. It was a great job and I learned so much over the 20 years I was there. Unfortunately as I got older, I was replaced by younger and smarter people, and ASML tossed me out like a used dishrag.
Pros
Cutting edge technology
Cons
Too quick to lay people off, no feelings for employees

Poor leadership
6 month contract Material Registrar (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORMarch 25, 2018
I worked there on 6 month contract, company wide very poor management, company wide very poor training, it's a Dutch company with a Dutch culture, not very American when it comes to what Americans are used to, while there are many openings with higher then average earnings I have personally blacklisted ASML and I will never go back, the only thing I will say is they are growing too fast and they pay well to keep people in spite of poor working conditions, high pay in my opinion doesn't make the high stress worth it.
Pros
higher then average pay
Cons
way too much stress, very poor management, very poor training

Reactive departments
Various Positions (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZMarch 8, 2018
Project management critical aspect is timing... cost and scope are less important. Decisions are often made without input or consideration from key users.

Lack of collaboration, especially by not engaging SME's (subject matter experts).
Pros
Very international communities and workgroups.

ASML Job experience
Technician/Assembler (Former Employee) –  Wilton, CTMarch 7, 2018
I did enjoy working at ASML and was hoping to become permanent but I had to move before the contract timing was over. The management and people were nice to work with. The hardest part of the job was the clean room garment from head to toe. The most enjoyable part of the job was the complex and detailed work I had to do.
Pros
People, culture it was a nice place to work.
Cons
The use of the full clean room garment. It was uncomfortable at times.

Fast Paced, Challenging Work environment with many opportunities
Project Leader (Current Employee) –  Wilton, CTMarch 3, 2018
ASML offers a lot of challenging problems and room to excel to its employees, although there is some bureaucracy to contend with it is more streamlined than you'd expect from a 10,000+ employee engineering company. Employees have the opportunity to work on incredibly challenging technical problems.

High performers are recognized and allowed to advance, but compensation above the entry level is below market.

ASML is barely average while claiming to lead industry.
Field Service Engineer (Current Employee) –  Lehi, UTMarch 3, 2018
ASML is a good place to work if you live in the Netherlands, otherwise they do not an anyway value the individual employees. Especially those who work at the smaller office locations. Working for ASML in my experience has been a subpar experience. I would not recommend joining this company.
Pros
Schedule and vacation.
Cons
No advancement subpar raises.

Operational Procurement (Former Employee) –  Wilton, CTFebruary 6, 2018
I liked working at ASML for the experience and growth. But, Management is unmotivated, and hired more on relationships, than merit. Hard to grow your career with issues of stagnation.
Pros
large facility, modernizing
Cons
tight cubicles, tough bosses, unclear directives

Love the technology
Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Wilton, CTJanuary 25, 2018
Great place to work. The technology is cutting edge and awe inspiring. Roles are not clean cut, which has ups and downs. People are super nice and happy to help. Great positive climate. Sometimes requires you to be a paper pusher. Management is open to criticism and want you to grow.
Pros
Free Lunches, Fun workplace, Can be challenging
Cons
Paper Pushing

They are understanding but expect you to hit the ground running. There is a 2-tier system of a large number of Contractors with Permanent employees. Very Agile and Scrum oriented.
