CEO & management are paranoid and incapable

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Brooklyn, NY (US)

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

ProsVery cool product. A lot of very smart and effective employees.

ConsReally bad management. They simply do not communicate their intent. If and when employees finally hear what's going on, it's usually only to discover a fresh batch of poor decisions.

The "wow" factor of the product is the only thing keeping people here, and hence the only thing keeping the company alive. A lot of other companies are appearing in this space though. MakerBot's advantage will disappear quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue the smart people you've hired.

And help the CEO to understand how bad at his job he is -- there's always a chance he can learn.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Amazing potential...going down the drain.

I worked at Makerbot full-time


Pros: The work environment is great -- when you'd not being blindsided by incompetent, reactive calls from the top. First off, the company basically created… Cons: The downsides, unfortunately, have come to outweigh the positives. Top management, especially the CEO, are in a desperate, reactive mode that threatens to destroy… Advice to Senior Management: Value your employees and community. Rein in the Founder/CEO… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
