Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, OROctober 17, 2018
Company is awesome if you are an engineer. Anything else not worth it. Stressful, lack of communication. Office gossip is the worse. Hard to advance if you don't have a degree.
Pros
great benefits, Will pay for college
Cons
Stressful, Office drama

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

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

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.

SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  Wilton, CTJanuary 27, 2019
A great workplace, but stringent standards.
Since it involves hundreds of million dollar equipment, the coding standards, work ethics are quite influenced by corporate culture.

Data Analytics Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 2, 2019
I have never been in a company with such a chaotic design process and haphazard documentation. Requirements, specification, and code are scattered over several document types based on no apparent system.

Great place to work for a self-motivated individual
Customer Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Chandler, AZAugust 24, 2018
Imeediately became immersed in the semiconductor industry, and had to catch up on the steep learning curve. Afterwards, it was a constant battle to learn more about the new and upcoming subsystems in order to become proficient at my job. The job involves a lot of troubleshooting with help from a lot of multi-discipline team members.
