Expect hard work and little to no chance of advancement
Customer Service Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CASeptember 13, 2018
Cymer offers a lot of extra encouragement through after work social hours, where beer, wine, and snacks are offered. They also have Helloween and Christmas family events.

But this has no impact on the fact that the wrong people (verbally abusive, incompetent) are already in leading positions and they promote their "buddies" with them. Pay is good, the people you work with are smart and motivated. If you plan to advance, you will have to look elsewhere.
Pros
ability to shape leading edge technology
Cons
no opportunity for advancement or promotion

Fast changing, high energy company
Staff Test Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJuly 18, 2018
Working at Cymer offered an exciting opportunity for me to offer my skills that applied to development and research of tomorrows electronics.
The Cymer Atmosphere has changed significantly over the past few years since the Acquisition by ASML Corporation. What once felt like a high energy fast moving small business organization has changed into a corporate atmosphere. I will remain unbiased as to the benefits of a small company vs large corporation as both have upsides and both have downsides.
Starting with Cymer we all learned and had to play rolls that wore many different hats. This offered a very broad range of experiences that. As an ASML organization the feel is a bit more specific to the function that is being filled. Every person has specific roll functions and they become experts in that field and is then applied to range of areas.

A good place to work if it weren't for management
MECHANICAL ENGINEERING LEAD ENGINEER/TEAM LEAD (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 27, 2018
The projects are very exciting and challenging, but development is hampered by a terrible management structure and a distinct lack of technical competence across the board at the managerial level that stagnates employee growth as there are no seasoned mentors to be found.

Fast Paced Friendly Environment
planner (Former Employee) –  San Diego, caApril 23, 2018
It is a very fast paced highly technical environment. You have to work really fast to stay on top of your responsibilities. When deadlines are approaching management gets very stressed out & tend to take it out on the lower level employees. Overall its a good place to work.
Pros
Catered Events
Cons
Deadlines, Work hours

Be Careful what you ask for
Decline to say (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAJanuary 25, 2018
Old company, relaxed, innovative, spirited, and move forward with a sense of urgency.

New company after sale, tense, confused, regimented and non-bending, specific to a fault, and not much of the drive that there used to be - not in the way an entrepreneur builds something with a vision.
Pros
The people
Cons
The company and ensuing beauracracy

Great product with a mediocre management team
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CADecember 31, 2017
A place where one can learn different disciplines of science but on the other hand the place has, in most of the departments mediocre management. Hardest part for me and others being there is that the place doesn't offer great mobility within the company. It is most impossible to transfer to a different group once one becomes part of one. Opportunities for advancement scarce. The only enjoyable part of the job for me is the fellow employees and some of the perks offered during the holidays.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Management and organization culture
