I have been working at Makerbot

Pros

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

Cons

What 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 ManagementAdvice

My 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.

    I have been working at Makerbot full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Makerbot full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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