I have been working at Natus Medical

Pros

Working with people who care about the products they are making, products that will positively impact the lives of patients.

Cons

Job security is low, many changes with rapid acquisition business plan. This leads to many people leaving voluntarily due to the perception that they may be let go at any time. With all the recent layoffs and resignations work load keeps going up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The long term plan needs to be clear and people need to feel they will have something to do besides fighting fires related to the most recent acquisition. The leaders are concerned with growing the company at any cost, there is no passion at the top for Neurology, only what will keep us afloat and make our numbers look good so when we reach 500 million we will be an attractive purchase to a larger company.

    I worked at Natus Medical full-time

    Pros

    Higher than average pay for this position. More holidays than most. Company is financially stable and well respected.

    Cons

    Not organized. Policies and procedures change regularly. Little communication. Managment does not seem to know what is going on in the field. Very political environment. Travel is not 75%, more like 80-95%. Be prepared to be thrown into the fire without an extinguisher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to workers in the field. Pay attention to what is actually happening. Lot's of money being wasted and workers are burning out. Pay attention to how things are being ran.

    I worked at Natus Medical full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Engineering team with talented software, mechanical and electronics engineers.
    Challenging environment with great products.
    Software is very advanced in its core functionality, but mostly legacy, extremely hard to learn, maintain and build on.

    Cons

    Half of the engineering team was gone by fall 2013 due to demoralizing atmosphere.
    Corporate mgmt, especially CTO seemed to be hell bent to move jobs to India.
    Company adopted GE's style of management hardly appropriate for an industrial company, and totally inappropriate for a high tech company, R&D investment % was low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To corporate management - resign, to middle management - survive until corporate resigns.
