    I have been working at Stratasys full-time

    Pros

    Great technologies, not afraid to invest for growth, lots of new talent joining the company that brings (much needed) new energy and perspective, competitive pay, fast paced global business. The company is focused on aggressively reducing red tape over the next few years. I have worked at 3 other companies in my career and Stratasys is the best. It has its issues (like all companies) but is of a size where you can have impact yet still feel part of something bigger.

    Cons

    Navigating cultures can be difficult but no worse than other global companies, A lot of restructuring recently but it seems to be mostly complete.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and champion a clear strategy and make the investments needed to ensure leadership in this industry. Continue to upskill the organization and focus on new approaches to win in the competitive market

    Pros

    Very amazing technology that is still in its infancy across industry. A lot of opportunities to grow within role and within company. Employees are dedicated and appear to really enjoy their work.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but for those who do not like change there is a lot of change internally. Personally, I enjoy this environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize when possible. Employees appreciate a stable environment and marching to the beat of a common goal.

    Pros

    Major player in the industry.

    Cons

    Major silos and infighting between various groups.
    Leadership conflicts between US and Israel.
    Micromanagement in the operations function driving good employees out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Let people do the jobs you pay them to do. Drive consistent direction and vision to get organization driving in a consistent direction.

    I have been working at Stratasys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely customer focused (at least in the Americas). Executive team is all about action and will role up their sleeves to get things done. They are very accessible and seek feedback.for improvement.

    Cons

    There is not an overarching SSYS strategy, there are PolyJet and FDM strategies with a sprinkle of vertical focus. PJ product group does not focus on the customer, just perceived solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Have the product groups visit customers.

    I have been working at Stratasys full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Access to cutting edge (and very expensive) 3D printing technology, FREE.
    - "start up" culture with a lot of opportunities to learn new skills, softwares, etc.
    - Working with industry leading clients is really cool - every customer uses their printer for applications that are equally unique and fascinating.
    - Fun work environment & lots of opportunities to engage with coworkers both during work and after work

    If you are a positive person who can handle a fast-paced work environment, Stratasys is a great place for you.

    Cons

    3D Printing as an Industry moves fast. So does Stratasys. Some reviews below seem to come from people uncomfortable with slight ambiguity and a fast-moving industry. Like any large company, there will be frustrations with beurocracy and processes. However, Fast Pace + Ambiguity = Opportunity for Employees.

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

    Pros

    -The technology and the desire to drive it is great. Desks look like toy stores with wild 3D prints of everything from tools to cartoon characters. Employees make some very cool stuff here.
    -A big company with a start-up feel. It feels exciting but has the benefits of a bigger company. They have a massage therapist 2x a month,
    -Management cares-The President of Americas holds a lunch with new employees to ask about their experience and takes notes on what can be improved.

    Cons

    Like anywhere, there are processes and practices that can improve but people seem happy to work with you to make it happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Stratasys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The technology is cutting edge, and as an employee you have access to use it.

    Cons

    COMPLETELY mismanaged company. Need to clean house from the top down. The company is crumbling and people are leaving left and right due to complete misdirection and unclear expectations.

    Advice to Management

    How about you dont intentionally keep you employees in the dark then drop a new campaign on them with the expectation being to have results just meer days later for a start?

    Pros

    The technology was advance.

    Cons

    Weak management that promote cover up and short term goal. If you decide to work there, DO NOT for get CYA. Save every email and everything that ppl ask you to do. They cut corner on everything. Quality is the first things to go once month end approaches.

    Advice to Management

    Put competent people in place. Since I've left there has been 100% turn over in 1 year. It's not the people. The people you put in place encourage chaos.

    Pros

    Cool technology, some good people.

    Cons

    Management is a revolving door of people trying to get quick short term benefits that don't hold up in the long run, before they leave for another workplace. Employees are all disengaged, noone respects management decisions, input is disregarded.

    Advice to Management

    Identify and listen to the few remaining dedicated employees.
