    I have been working at 3D Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about the AM industry, regardless of the role you are in. You will be able to take your career wherever you want it to go. There are a lot of challenges to face that enable development and growth, regardless of your functional area. VJ is a visionary that truly cares about people, which is the polar opposite of the former CEO. The Executives from HP actually know how to run a business, and no...

    Cons

    There will be some late nights and/or weekends occasionally, which is something I have experienced every place I have worked. The AM industry is highly competitive right now, and there was no bonus paid this year - BUT - the company is going in the right direction, and hard work now will pay off huge in the next 3-5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard and supporting the employees. Pay some kind of bonus next year, as 2 years in a row with no bonus would even make the strong performers start looking.

    Dear Current Employee, Thank you for the thoughtful comments. I agree - the Additive Manufacture (AM) industry is really exciting and there are a lot of challenges and opportunities to learn, grow, and develop at 3D Systems. I also appreciate what you noted about VJ and the leadership ...

    I worked at 3D Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, managers want to be involved, interesting work in the big picture, usually get heard if you speak up

    Cons

    Treated like a piece of assembly line so nobody is encouraged to get the big picture, very niche market so hard to translate to other jobs, company pays below market value, healthcare location is expected to exceed expectations to cover where other areas are lacking, usually understaffed in vital areas, very little training for company with technical roles

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and take the time to get things under control. It’s a fast paced environment and the current system has a small company mindset and it’s going to put you in a little tight spot if it isn’t seriously re-evaluated.

    Pros

    Very innovative with room to expand withing a disruptive technology.

    Cons

    Top heavy company to many executives

    Advice to Management

    3D Systems is a wonderful place to work! very fulfilling and meaningful work. I think that Management and executives are top heavy. For example you have a an individual that could easily run reports, yet there allowed to hire 2-3 people to do the job of one. I've found myself doing multiple jobs outside of my duties while others kickback and do nothing.

    I worked at 3D Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great teammates. Cool technology. Really an opportunity to be part of something important with the medical business.

    Cons

    Tend to overlook the "little people". Little respect for employees. Expect 100% loyalty but will not return it. Still looking to find the right formula for true sustainable success.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach. Cost savings should come from the top down, not bottom up. Don't take away from the people in the trenches. Really listen to what employees have to say in their exit interviews...not everyone is "just being bitter".

    I worked at 3D Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I worked with good people. The ones on hourly anyway.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Human resources is there for the upper management. They could care less about the hourly associated. No matter what you say, you were in the wrong.

    Advice to Management

    The only fix for this company is to sell out to a company the knows what they are doing or fire all of your management and human resources and start over. Listen to you employees. Not the managers. They are telling you what you want to hear.

    I have been working at 3D Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1.Very talented, smart, experienced people. 2.Challenging, interesting work. 3.Positive energy from the CEO.

    Cons

    1.Only offer 2 week vacation plus 1 week of sick. 2.No stock purchase plan or options as part of compensation unless you're C-level. 3.Lacks diversity. Few women especially in management. 4.Too internally focused and not understanding of customers' needs.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to decide what businesses to focus on, consolidate, clean house, and get to work. Promote customer-centric criteria to all decision-making. Implement a profit-sharing program and start holding people accountable to their business P&L. Promote women into strategic leadership roles instead of service ones.

    Lots of interesting work if given the opportunity to do it.

    Cons

    Management was AWFUL. No idea how to run IT, keep making promises to the executives that were unrealistic. No appreciation for the work that the team completed. Prior to new CIO, you felt appreciated and got recognized for your work effort. After CIO, you never got any positive feedback, just keep expecting more work without any benefit. The CIO only recognized the employees that were hired directly by her, not the...

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your IT management and hire some managers who actually put their employees first and not themselves. Also, a vetting process so they don't bring in their old team members or friends from previous jobs. IT was full of buddies and pals in positions they were not qualified to do.
