Pros

Management is focused on making sure that employees are both a good fit with their supervisors and their teams; that makes for a very aligned atmosphere. I feel respected and acknowledged and excited to be working in such a creative and energetic company.

Cons

Growing pains but I really believe it will lead to all good things.

Advice to Management

Keep on recognizing your employees for their hard work--it does make a difference!

    Pros

    The product is interesting and the company could have a great potential if it was managed properly!

    Cons

    Really, really poor management consequently, the whole production employees are the ones who carry the burden. No consistency in the hours either: you would find yourself doing overtime for weeks because of mismanagement.
    There is new hiring everything 3 months because of people quitting:

    Advice to Management

    Trust and treat your employees better and maybe they might stick around!

    Pros

    The 3-D printing industry is fascinating and is booming. The work itself is great...very rewarding.
    The employees are awesome! Some of the most down-to-earth people you will ever meet!

    Cons

    The company culture is very divisive. The company is split in terms of what department you happen to work in (like night and day). You might as well be working for two different companies.

    Very poor management, poorly-made decisions. No clear direction from the top. There are just blanket speeches made about numbers and bottom lines.

    There is very high turnover here. Constantly changing staff because of firings and people who just left on their own. Constant upper management turnover as well.

    Employees are not valued. They are treated like robots (for lack of a better term!).

    Salaries are sub-standard, at best.

    Advice to Management

    As has been stated a few times already, place more value on your employees, and your sales and company earnings will naturally follow suit.
