    I have been working at 3D Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    3DS is literally on the cutting edge of technology and everybody here seems to be working really hard to stay there. I also work hard but love what I'm doing. It's really the opportunity of a lifetime. I feel like I am trusted and encouraged to take risks and get to work with a lot of different people across the organization on many of the exciting things going on.

    Cons

    The pace of our growth can be challenging, there's a lot of work and it comes at an incredibly fast pace. But the opportunities that come from that are endless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvements still needed in organization and infrastructure. Need to align entire company around a single strategy, especially with all the new acquisitions.

    Pros

    Ability to contribute in all areas of innovative engineering. Forward thinking is the norm. Work hours very flexible. Quick development cycles lead to accelerated career growth opportunities . You will never be bored. International company with opportunity to travel and work with other cultures. 3D Systems created an industry and we get to work with the people that developed it. Passionate leadership with a purpose. You have the opportunity to change how people interact with the world. From developing processes that enable people to walk again to creating little robots that children can play with. The work environment is casual yet focused. This is not a job but a calling. You are given the freedom to innovate and affect the future of the technology. .3D is a playground of innovation and we get to play in it. It is a joy to have that privilege

    Cons

    Always pushing the envelope, but love it!

    Pros

    -Things at 3D Systems move faster than anywhere else I've ever worked. I knew that going in and that's what attracted me to the place. It's understandable that some people would find that to be a negative and a lot of the reviews on here seem to confirm that. To me, it's the best part of the job.

    -The whole 3D printing industry is still a nascent space and this is a company that still thinks and moves like a startup, so there is a ton of opportunity. I've been genuinely impressed at the degree of freedom I've been given to try new things and feel like the company does a good job rewarding initiative.

    -Even though there's a lot of work, the company is very flexible with scheduling, which certainly improves the work-life balance.

    -It's cool to be able to work with such cutting edge technology on a daily basis.

    Cons

    -Most of the people here work extremely hard and hours are longer than in most places. So be prepared. But this speaks more towards the type of people who work here than the office itself. The company seems to attract people who are obsessed with getting stuff done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Do a better job getting information out about updates/strategy/etc across the company. With so many acquisitions, it can sometimes be hard to figure out what's going on.

    2) Try to make the workplace more fun and creative

    I have been working at 3D Systems

    Pros

    I've worked at a few manufacturing / technology companies and 3D is one of the best. They're trying to turn their corporate image around, and I think they're doing a pretty good job. They are loaded with bright, energetic people. Senior management is on the ball, and they make work-life balance a part of their decision-making process. They are loaded with cutting-edge technology, optimism, and a solid work ethic.

    Cons

    Communication can lag at times. The internal groups need to do a better job of communicating between themselves. This probably stems from the diversified offerings and the fast-paced nature of the business. Employee desktop and laptop computers are due for a refresh. The economy played a major role with heavy internal cost-cutting, but the company is strong, and heading in the right direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New laptops please :)
