    I worked at 3D Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers were the best. Leaders were trusting and supportive before the merging. Used to focus on efficiency and willing to test out new ideas.

    Cons

    Terrible health benefit. Experienced big shakeup during and after merging. All the outstanding coworkers left. Board named new executives were horrible.

    Great Benefits and team collaboration are on point.

    Pros

    Great exciting company with good benefits, fair pay and a lot of flexibility. Dog friendly ! Getting better with the open environment being addressed and the new CEO has a lot of tasks in place for employee appreciation and the ability to advance!

    Cons

    Management isn't very good, lots of favoritism no real respect I'm for growth unless you have a Bachelors degree and there isn't great communication or teammates knowing each other or knowing what other areas do and no org chart ! Excited to see what happens with the new CEO in place !!! Things should get much better!

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees equally, be fair, communication must get better and training must improve!

    I worked at 3D Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Getting to understand the technology behind 3D printing and how it works. The salary offered for the role was competitive.

    Cons

    TO much management. When the new CEO came in he was going to re-structure that.... that seemed to have been done with to much new management. Give recognition to the hard working employees that support the product/infrastructure. It seems that some teams run to lean causing to much work and a breakdown in processes/procedures. There was no chance to move up or advance. Lots of negativity and the simple "hi" to people walking by in the hallways was hard to get.

    Advice to Management

    It seems that the new CEO is trying to bring in the right people, however there is way to much upper management/director positions being filled. Hire workers that support all those users and give those users that support the office the bandwidth to help take care of the users within those offices. Lots of users that I came in contact with had said there were not enough support people to support ALL the people.

    I worked at 3D Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Marketable skills. Fun coworkers. Interesting product to work with. Seems like all admin and clerical staff enjoyed their work and environment. May have been a good place for those with technology skills in the beginning as there are senior techs who do get treated well and enjoy their jobs.

    Cons

    Does not play well with contractors. Not kind to production line employees at all. Daily browbeating by lower management due lack of planning by those further up. Low wages for production line employees even after you learn your whole product line and then some.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of planning on your part does not justify the mistreatment of the production line employees. Also: levels of respect for employees should be consistant across the entire organization.

    Pros

    Great and fun Technology we work with. Great team work happening here more and more. People here are Great. I would love to have given it a 5 star but we have't reach that point yet. Future looks very promising.

    Cons

    I have been here now for a year and have heard so much negativity on how this company was before I started. Seems like they have weed out most of the not so good people. This is the new 3d Systems let's leave what happen in the past stay in the past and that mentality with it.

    Advice to Management

    I would have to say communicate more with your team or at least the ones you Direct.

    Pros

    Cool technology and a lot of passionate coworkers. The new executive team is a lot more open to ideas and seems to be driving the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    The open workspace was by far the biggest issue. But from what I understand, that's finally being handled in phases.
