    I worked at Cymer full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall compensation is a top in the city. Stable and progressive company.

    Cons

    Too many of project management folks. Sometimes you as an engineer think that they (project leads and managers) are core people to the company and they (PLs) deliver know-how, innovations, etc. on their own.

    Advice to Management

    I do not expect that anything could change company's culture and fundamentals. They has run it this way for 30+ years. This type of companies may disappaer at some point as many of similar ones have gone.
