    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

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

    Pros

    New leadership in MN is bringing a top team and starting to see results. A lack of leadership at the CEO level the past few years is obvious now that the board is involved daily. Great people joining daily and fixing issues of the past.

    Cons

    We're fixing many many areas in unison. It's hard work!

    Advice to Management

    Keep going, the improvements are palpable.

    Pros

    Stable, solid competitive position, plenty of cash in the bank

    Cons

    Too stable, should be growing. Playing it safe.

    Advice to Management

    Critically assess if the Israeli portion of the company is adding value to the US portion. Address the turf struggles between organizations that should be cooperating/collaborating within the US business.

    Pros

    Good people in the rank and file

    Cons

    Leadership Team, Executive direction, overall strategy

    Advice to Management

    Time to split the company or consolidate. This company needs a single identity. Somehow a merger took 2B in value and reduced it to 700M. Wonder how that happened?

    Pros

    The innovations for customers can be awe inspiring - but the same can be said for any 3D printing technology company. The technology is cool - just don't plan to use it yourself since most employees get to use the oldest machines they have.

    Cons

    Building, inspiring, leading, delivering .. nice words... but not really what you'll ever be recognized or rewarded for delivering. Lucky if you get 2-3 years before you jump out a window or get pushed. Money can be attractive but there's always a reason not to reward you. There's a promise always of a new day, of becoming the best company to work for in MN, to move to a new HQ but the reality is those promises can't be kept as there's a revolving door of managers and people. The bureaucracy to purchase anything on behalf of the company can make you beat your head into the wall.

    Advice to Management

    There's a reason why you languish behind the scenes, why morale is so low, why turnover is so incredibly high throughout the company - it's you. Here's a recipe for a turnaround. Step 1 - get a CEO who has a vision and the skills to drive forward as a leader not a money manager. 2 - Fire the board of directors except Scott Crump & get industry representation and business leadership think about who you are selling to. 3 - Get a new management team to replace the who's who of incompetents that were seemingly hired for no other reason than the price was right. 4 - Wake up and act like a company that cares about employees and the future. Invest. 5 - embrace an exit strategy sell yourselves/merge with a real company - reward shareholders and employees for the long slow ride.

    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.
