    Great group of people to work with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsExcellent Benefits. Annual bonus based on company profits. Employee pricing on GM vehicles.

    ConsRaises do not keep up with the cost of living. Too many office politics. Managers are primarily hired with no knowledge of what they are managing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Potential, but classic example of weak and bad Management

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Plymouth, MI

    ProsVast Product Portfolio to be able to address almost any customer need. Very talented and good people on staff

    ConsAbsolutely the worst Management you can imagine. No skills of the business, or what is managed. Very poor human interaction skills. everybody feels #watched#, it is like having the KGB watching you all the time. Very low moral, as people are not empowered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace yourself's. You will make everyone happy by just walking away.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The perfect example of bad management

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Plymouth, MI

    ProsYou get to work on a lot of different platforms and projects which keep you very busy. Those who are the actual "worker bees" that do all the work are actually fairly pleasant to be around and work with.

    ConsThe internal systems to the company are a joke. The inventory system is from the early 80s and management expects it to operate as if it was state of the art. The company leans on their suppliers to help with a lot of the heavy lifting on projects because the company wants to "run lean" and not hire the necessary employees and they can't keep anyone worth keeping because they treat employees as if they're brainless cattle. Management from the highest levels to the individual department heads are clueless and can't get anything right if it was handed to them that way. If you don't believe me, do your own research and reach out to a current employee and gauge the work atmosphere from them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop spying on your employees and let them do their job. Get rid of the lifers who are the true source of not getting projects completed effectively and efficiently and give those who are doing the true work an opportunity to move up.

    Not the Best Place to Work

    Technical Support (Current Employee) Plymouth, MI

    ProsNot really any to discuss

    ConsTech Support is expected to work 11 to 12 hours a day and they want to pay you for 8. When asked about OT the answer is no!!!
    Managers are very unfriendly – Even the “Big Guy” upstairs won’t say hi to you in the hallway
    IPG & Trumpf lasers are taking our customers on a daily basis – This is fact
    Our Fiber Lasers and Slab lasers are full of Quality issues - You would be shocked

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace yourselves
    Create a Quality System - Competitors are eating us alive!!

    Nice company to work

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Munich (Germany)

    ProsWorldwide locations so you can communicate with many different people of all over the world,
    very interesting technology and many subsidiaries; wide spread product portfolio; nice colleagues, nice atmosphere, relatively safe job

    ConsVery conservative command structure to many leaders to ask and not a chance to contribute with your own ideas and work process.
    Hardly opportunities to promote,
    Salary are not the highest

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee the cons and try to improve it!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
