    I worked at Makerbot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good talented people. Creative and innovative ideas with lots of passion and devotion. Lots of possibilities for learning and additional responsibilities.

    Cons

    Several rounds of layoffs between 2015-2017 was demoralizing to morale. Industry headwinds are still very unknown so although the work done at Makerbot was very forward and innovative, what actually reached the market was questionable. Pay was overall low, as was upward mobility. Bonuses were minimal and raises over the 2015-2017 time period, regardless of performance and body of work was minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the most talented employees and give them the resources required to complete the projects. Reward those who go above and beyond. There is a reason the best employees over the past few years have left and gone on to the best companies and are extremely successful.

    Software Test Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Makerbot (Brooklyn, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiter sent a hacker rank test for me to complete which was simple enough. I had made it to the on-site interview where they had a panel of different people talk to me, including a whiteboard interview and tech assessment.

    Less than a week later they wanted me to come back for another on-site interview and interview with another team. I did and within the week they told me that they were going to give me an offer. The only problem was that they had to wait for their budget to be cleared, and that I was the only person in that pipeline. They were assuring me that it was only a matter of time until I would get the offer letter, being that I had another standing offer. I waited for their budget to be cleared and eventually gave up after 3 weeks of waiting. Two months after they told me I was going to get an offer, I got an email saying that the position had been filled.
