    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!

    "Talented employees, but sort of struggling with growth"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Pros

    Seeing new developments with 3d printing and getting to see how the technology was changing. Office culture was mostly very encouraging - almost everyone i asked for help was more than willing to give their time and energy, and there are some really talented 3d designers/artists that work there.

    Cons

    The company was a little bit too huge, and we worked hard on projects that were cut out of nowhere, since apparently another team across the country had also been working on something similar. Sometimes it felt like innovations weren't necessarily driven by actual needs, but rather just trying to figure out how to make cool 3d printed objects.

    Also it was pretty apparent when certain employees weren't really doing anything or contributing (even though I heard they were eventually cut from their positions).

    Advice to Management

    Try harder with company-wide communication. Emphasize more research into solving needs, rather than stressing 3d-printing objects for the sake of 3d printing.

    Pros

    The company has many different groups, some of which are doing amazing, ground breaking work that has real potential. VJ has some great ideas, and is working to make the company feel more whole.

    Cons

    Other areas/groups are left to their own devices, with little to work with - people are leaving, and others are expected to take on the extra work
