I have been working at ROFIN-SINAR Technologies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You 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.

Cons

The 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 Management

Stop 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.

    Pros

    Not really any to discuss

    Cons

    Tech 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 Management

    Replace yourselves
    Create a Quality System - Competitors are eating us alive!!

    Pros

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

    Raises 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 Management

    Listen to your employees.
