Pros

The 3-D printing industry is fascinating and is booming. The work itself is great...very rewarding.
The employees are awesome! Some of the most down-to-earth people you will ever meet!

Cons

The company culture is very divisive. The company is split in terms of what department you happen to work in (like night and day). You might as well be working for two different companies.

Very poor management, poorly-made decisions. No clear direction from the top. There are just blanket speeches made about numbers and bottom lines.

There is very high turnover here. Constantly changing staff because of firings and people who just left on their own. Constant upper management turnover as well.

Employees are not valued. They are treated like robots (for lack of a better term!).

Salaries are sub-standard, at best.

Advice to Management

As has been stated a few times already, place more value on your employees, and your sales and company earnings will naturally follow suit.

    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!

    With quick growth comes change and change isn't always easy for everyone.
