Delivering on the promise.

Natera is driven by a passion for elevating the science and utility of prenatal testing. The advent of the Information Age has created a paradigm shift in the fields of computing and informatics. Surprisingly, medical diagnostics have been slow to integrate these advances into genetic testing.

Using advances from the human genome project and powered by sophisticated proprietary bioinformatic algorithms, Natera’s comprehensive portfolio of tests, proven science, and experienced genetic counseling services deliver the most accurate results in the industry.

All with one mission in mind: helping families conceive and deliver.

    I have been working at Natera full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people & a fun/social work environment. The company and leadership really want to make quality products that help make people's lives better. Work here is challenging and isn't always easy, but it is always worthwhile. There have been growing pains over the past few years, but management tries to resolve them. That is what life at a burgeoning company is like.

    I like it here. There is a lot of opportunity for growth. The company expects (but recognizes) hard work.

    Cons

    Judging by other reviews left here, there are obviously some departments or groups that are having a rough time and being vocal about it. I don't see any of this hostility on a day to day basis at work. Adjustment to the pace here and the continued growth of the company takes some perseverance.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out why so many people seem dissatisfied in their reviews on glassdoor. It seems to be localized to less senior employees in specific departments. More management training for middle-level managers may help. Continue to focus on quality, be less stressed about timelines, and continue to increase transparency.
