Frauds

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Makerbot

ProsSome of the most interesting and exciting people have worked here. They never stay for long, but they manage to recruit amazing people.

ConsWhat you read here is pretty much the truth. We are very badly underpaid, but more importantly, the company cannot decide between caring about the community (seemingly at a cost to profitability) and caring about the bottom line and making a few people very rich. I suppose it will settle on the latter but I've never worked anywhere before where I felt bad for our customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to the board and the investors: find someone who isn't just a pretty face that we can respect and who has credibility with the community that we've completely lost touch with. Or failing that, find someone who can actually be as mercenary as management aspires to be. Then we could get paid a living wage.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
