    Former Employee - Sales Coordinator in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at 3form full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great product line and overall company direction. They are constantly coming out with new innovative and on-trend products. Great poeple to work with.

    Cons

    The Sales Coordination department was a undervalued and the pay was very low for the amount of work and stress for the position. This contributed to the revolving door for this position. Immediate supervisors were aware of the difficulty, but it seemed to fall on deaf ears any further up the chain. This contributed to the revolving door for this and the supervisiory role to this position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider improvement when the morale of an entire department is low. There needed to be a better work-life balance for this department.

    I worked at 3form full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    people are awesome! company is trying to improve culture by building a gym, providing yoga classes, new coffee machine, etc. product is innovative and downright cool. marketing department is cool, production is cool.

    Cons

    Individual departments do not work together. you are literally fighting the factory to get your jobs made and on time. Sometimes there would be 6+ week delays and the factory was unwilling or unable to move up jobs even if it was a 3form fault. For example, you have a project and the factory polishing the edges messed up and burned it. So, you would have to remake the plastic, but the plastic factory wouldn't push through any orders because overtime hours would mess up their profit margins. You, as the direct contact with the customer, would have to deliver the bad news and literally get yelled at, berated, delaying huge projects and there is nothing you can do. project managers and middle management are not empowered to make decisions so everything has to be approved by the coo and cfo, who operate a good ole boys club with their favorites. There is no incentive to do the right thing for the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and empower them to make decisions. Positively incentivize departments to cooperate with one another. Cross train within departments so people know the big picture so they understand how their cooperation can affect the final outcome of the project.

    Current Employee - Graphic Designer in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at 3form full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Design-wise, the standard for work was high and there was alway interest in keeping up with new opportunities. Motivation to collaborate was descent. Hours were regular.

    Cons

    A few times a year, I had to put in overtime for trade shows and new products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management often felt out of touch because we were left out of important conversations. Talking more with your employees could help them trust your leadership.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at 3form full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great product when used correctly, great technical expertise in fabrication, some great people in the office to work with.

    Cons

    Sales force is entitled and lacks basic product knowledge, untrained and not managed, unaccountable. They could not sell a concept- they are 100% dependent on office staff to sell their products.
    Management has been unable to match the product and processes to customer needs. Customer experience is the #1 problem and there are not attempts being made to correct it.
    Low pay, no advancement, 50+ hour weeks, no standard processes for work.
    Best jobs at 3form are in the factory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable sales support staff with technology and automation. Focus on the process to get a sale through and how it can be brought down to one click of the mouse, if possible.
    Shift the perception that employees are monkeys pushing buttons to expecting expertise and exceptional customer service from a highly skilled and highly intelligent support team.

    Sales reps dump of menial work

    Restructure the department and put some competent people with real project manager experience in charge to streamline process. Distribute sales reps in a manner that makes sense (by region).

    3-Form is not a company that I would work for again

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Salt Lake City, UT
    Former Employee - Project Manager in Salt Lake City, UT

    I worked at 3form

    Pros

    Other Team members are fun and engaging to work with. 3-form used to hire (unsure about now) quality graduates from local universities and quality sales representatives.

    Cons

    Upper management is almost completely useless. They will throw you under the bus if needs be and they are strictly about the money. Please note, If you decide to take a job as in project management at 3-form you will not be respected and will be used at any given chance. You will be treated as a virtual back-end office and dished all problems that your sales rep and management do not want to deal with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to support your employees, and be more transparent and honest.
