    Pros

    Love the people. Focused, creative, hard working, collaborative. Know how to get things done in 'MakerBot Time'. You achieve in 1 week, what would normally take a month. Surprisingly, work/life balance, is balanced. 3D printing permeates the culture. Humbled by how customers unleash creativity with MakerBot's 3D ecosystem.

    Cons

    As with any (5 year old) start-up, it has its share of growing pains. Now, as part of a publicly traded company, there is a lot more attention to the #s. That's not bad, just means that pet projects don't happen. Real focus on goals and real impact. There's been an exodus of staff who may not like being 'accountable'. This also isn't bad, as new talent is focused on making a measurable difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't suddenly let the #s drive everything.
    It's about delighting & amazing customers.
