    I have been working at Makerbot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you stick around it feels like there is good opportunity for growth and ability to get involved with new projects. The company is really starting to ramp up and move at a faster pace, which is quite nice, as there is a vibrant and exciting flux that keeps things exciting. The ability to print is nice as well!

    Cons

    Could improve with more cross-departmental communication.

    I have been working at Makerbot full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay + Commission = Amazing Medical Benefits = Best I have had in a company. Added perks make a difference. Team Culture = Collaborative and has a family feel. Company Culture = Other teams are working together like the marketing and sales team. We all work together to make our company grow. Mina does a great job of creating company activities that bring us all together. Leadership = VP of Sales and VP of EDU are the best. They understand the market and are implementing great strategies that I can get behind and execute. They recognize everyone's talent and have an open line of communication.

    Cons

    One downside is just setting up a process that wasn't there before. The leadership team in place is already working on this but this would have to be the only downside I have noticed.

    Pros

    A very flat structure allows anyone to get into nearly anything.

    Cons

    A very flat structure allows anyone to get into nearly anything can also be a bit of a trouble where some roles and responsibilities can bleed into each-other.
