    Northstar was a great company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGreat people. Very exciting atmosphere to work in. Beautiful office and really great culture among employees. Good collaborations across groups

    ConsThe company did not really promote professional development for its employees the way that it should. Strategy and goals of management not clear.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should have been more clear about where the company was headed during the clinical review process and when the phase 3 trials came back

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsGreat team of engineers and clinical group. Northstar was very good at attracting exceptional talent in the engineering team. Within the engineering group there was super teamwork.

    ConsSenior management team did not get along with one another and this was obvious to the rank and file. They tended to hire people based on where they previously worked rather than on their own credentials.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the rank and file

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