I have been working at IPG Photonics full-time for more than a 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.

    I worked at IPG Photonics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are decent, good company outlook

    Cons

    Not a team environment, very hierarchical, lack the ability to move up within (open positions not posted) the only way to move up is to speak Russian or be brought in my one, status is more important than a job well done, they belittle people especially those who are not executives and this is acceptable, you are treated like a robot and not a human, HR is a joke and not people oriented at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a team and people will want to be there. Even the lowest paid person is doing something valuable for your company so treat them as so!
