OK if you don't have a family or life and are a workaholic

Technician (Current Employee)
Oxford, MA

I have been working at IPG Photonics

ProsPlenty of mandatory overtime enforced. Orange walls and yellow floors keep the employees happy.

ConsRequired to work 60+ hours per week. Upper management lacks foresight and plans poorly leaving the workers to make up their slack. Poor bonuses. Never have had a review so I don't know how I am doing. Critical information is seldom shared even when it directly relates to your own job. Never gives raises in salary.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you know you are going to be producing a lot of product. Hire, train and then produce, don't threaten, force employees to make up for your mistakes in planning.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
