I have been working at Makerbot full-time

Pros

Management is focused on making sure that employees are both a good fit with their supervisors and their teams; that makes for a very aligned atmosphere. I feel respected and acknowledged and excited to be working in such a creative and energetic company.

Cons

Growing pains but I really believe it will lead to all good things.

Advice to Management

Keep on recognizing your employees for their hard work--it does make a difference!

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

    Pros

    Talented people at the lower levels. A great product when management doesn't mess it up. Good attempts to promote people internally. People love the products they create. Sales folks are brilliant, and engineering is pretty amazing. If you can avoid management it is an OK place to work.

    Cons

    Management demands 110% dedication for 60% pay. Chinzy benefits with almost no stock options, Cheap healthcare, no 401(k) and very little time off. Often a 'you are lucky to have a job here' attitude shows by management.

    Many people have left in the last 3 months. It's impossible to tell which of them quit, and which of them were fired. People disappear from their jobs on some Fridays never to return.

    CEO is nice way over his head. Upper management expects perfection from employees, but are foolish and panicky themselves. Key decisions are made without knowing the facts, and employees clean up the mess later. Many bad decisions are made because of paranoia or secrecy.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a real CEO. Focus on internal management rather than trying to look good.
