I have been working at IPG Photonics full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Perfect equipment for research (in R&D department). A lot of productive official journeys. A lot of innovative projects to work under. High mobility berween projects.

Cons

Manufacture and R&D depatments locate in extremely small towns with bad infrastructure. It`s difficult to get to work for specialists from big cities. Relatively small salary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Marketing department should be improved and focused for forecasts of the market.

    Pros

    If you are talented at back stabbing and glory hounding, you should work at IPG.These qualities are thriving there. They make laser weapons, how inspiring.

    Cons

    When the Russian based company IPG did not fire but put respected American Managers in dead end jobs, the tone was set, soon all building managers told to learn Russian language to keep their jobs. Started hiring Russians that were related to or friends of other Russians already there. As this continued, the quality of life, the quality of work all went down hill for everyone.
    Trying to make a decent wage is impossible also. They will offer you much less than you were previously making. An interview is probably the biggest mistake, just walk out and work at any other job and be much happier anywhere else!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear out your HR department, start new. Hire some Americans to run other Americans also, stop with all the favors and weird Immigration laws that somehow do not apply to your foreign workers. (They bring Russians over and claim nobody in the world can do that job)
