I have been working at Natera full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You get to be surrounded by some of the sharpest minds doing extremely inspiring work, very fascinating technology. Everyone is friendly and eager to chat with you about what they do. While we work hard, we also find time to play hard, gorgeous facility, weekly catered food, you can bring your pet to work and there is even a soccer team including members from every department.

Cons

Again, very fast paced, you absolutely have to be in this environment, it is what makes us more successful and competitive, and ultimately more proud of where you work.

    I have been working at Natera full-time

    Pros

    The team is full of highly competent, hard working people. A lot of great science is being done at a very fast pace. The company is growing quickly and has a bright future. There is low tolerance for slackers or sloppiness. If you can deal with the intensity you will thrive, and if you show that you are competent and productive you will be promoted.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of you, and if you make thoughtless decisions, you will be held accountable. It can be difficult to always be on your toes and doing a good job, and you won't be cut much slack if you need to rest. While I put this as a con, it is more a question of whether there is a fit between you and the company culture. It can be a very demanding environment, but that is why the company has been more than doubling in value every year for almost a decade. The two unfortunately tend to go hand in hand.

    Advice to Management

    (1) From my viewpoint as an employee: I'd like a bit more compassion from above.
    (2) From my viewpoint as an equity holder, which I am via stock options: forget about what I said in (1), you are doing great.

    I worked at Natera full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -You will work with brilliant people.
    -You have the opportunity to "rise in the ranks" quickly. Because the company is small, each employee has high visibility and Natera is good at promoting from within.
    -The company culture has a high sense of purpose. This isn't just another tech company - the work Natera does is extremely meaningful and the culture reflects this.
    -You won't be micromanaged. Natera is still an entrepreneurial environment and employees enjoy high levels of autonomy.

    Cons

    -If you are looking for a strong training program or high levels of structure, this might not be the best environment for you. However, the company is working on implementing more processes, so if you enjoy putting structure around tasks, there is an opportunity for you at Natera.
