I have been working at Makerbot full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Cons

- Salary isn't great if you're not in a high-level position, but it's worth the pay cut to get a foot in the door of this innovative company and industry

Advice to Management

- Continue to notice and reward employees who are doing well and working hard - Sponsor training for all employees in every department

    Pros

    -You will never work with more talented, genuine, kindhearted and intelligent people than the ones you will find at MakerBot. Most of these people will be the leaders and innovators of the future. -3D printing is an amazing field to work in, it will change the world, and it is great to be a part of that process. Our products are great and could be the best. -Lot's of honesty and openness amongst employees. We are all on the same page. -Some managers and a few chief officers are good and fair people, true leaders.

    Cons

    -The pay is extremely low, imbalanced and an insult when compared to the money the company will waste in other places. -Certain employees are treated terribly. Paid unlivable wages, forced to work more than should be expected of one person and treated poorly the entire time. - There is a clear divide between production, corporate and retail that is getting worse and causing communication to become difficult. -The most powerful, and I'm assuming highest paid, employees are mostly friends or relatives. This wouldn't be so bad if they seemed more capable. - We have already started to lose the best employees, and more will follow if things don't get better.

    Advice to Management

    To the good managers and leaders: Keep fighting the good fight. Push back against unrealistic goals and deadlines. Pay close attention to your employees. To the very top: Please leave. You're stifling, suffocating and negative. Your paranoia and greed are showing. Make your money and get out. To the current and future investors: This company is a gold mine full of amazing talent and opportunity. We are waiting to flourish. Have us treated better and there is nothing we can't accomplish.
