    Pros

    Good company to gain experience and develop your skills. Fun to work around 3D printers. You are encouraged to try things and I enjoy coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    The decision making skills of management are questionable. The company is spread out and it is hard to feel like a team at times.

    Advice to Management

    Centralize the company more instead of having it spread out over several locations. Put your focus on making quality products rather than rushing stuff out the door. Marketing is great, but word spreads fast about a mediocre product these days. Developing a truly good product will essentially market itself. Consumers have never been better informed.

    Pros

    You get to work with really great people, which is difficult to find. Coworkers are open and collaborative. Projects vary and are engaging. 3D printing is a pretty cool industry.

    Cons

    The office location is inconvenient. The facilities could also be nicer – it seems they do the minimum amount necessary to make sure the office is a comfortable environment.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into facilities.

    Pros

    1) "Never a dull moment" - always exciting to hear about new collaborations

    2) "Magic of 3D printing" - working for the leader that's setting the standard in an up-and-coming industry

    3) "Valuable work to be done" - under my direct managers I had excellent guidance yet enough freedom to be my own marketer and was always encouraged to formulate new ideas and processes

    4) "Talent and dedication is abundant" - being surrounded by co-workers who work tirelessly to find ways to continue improving products and processes

    5) "Great experience" - I can walk away saying that I've learned a lot in such a short period of time

    6) If I was asked to come back and join the MakerBot team, I would definitely consider it and recommend the company to others.

    Cons

    No complaints. Understand that 3D printing is still in its infancy and MakerBot is constantly improving their products and processes to be better and more consumer friendly.

    Advice to Management

    I would have liked to see my internship transfer into a full-time position.

    One of the biggest things that makes a company a great place to work are the colleagues that you collaborate with everyday. We've got some brilliant and fun loving individuals.
