    Pros

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

    Cons

    Required 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 Management

    If 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.


  2. "3-week-long engineering internship was a great way to be introduced to the company and how it operates."

    I worked at IPG Photonics as an intern

    Pros

    The coworkers were all very friendly

    Cons

    Hours can be long (10+ hours/day, 5 days/week) but it is manageable.
