    I've been at Natera for about a year now and am glad I joined. I was hoping the role I signed up for would expand and that I'd get to see more aspects of the company and I probably got more exposure than I bargained for! If you sign up for something, you definitely get the chance to prove yourself. Love that I get to solve interesting problems with super smart people. Also love all the food - they changed to healthy options a couple months ago - but I do miss the salty stuff.


    Be careful about getting put on the spot - managers can be impatient and expect you to have answers. Worried they are expanding too quickly - my boss is interviewing people every day. There's almost zero desk space, where are these people going to fit?
