I worked at NxStage full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Relatively flexible hours, good pay, beautiful facility, good effort in trying to "rally the troops" to change renal care.

Cons

Complacent engineering management, no true direction or project management leaves engineers and projects running in circles and wasting huge amounts of time and money.

Advice to Management

Just because someone has been at the company since the beginning doesn't make them a good manager. Re-assess project management and lead engineers if you really want to get the next level projects moving.

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

    Pros

    Comfortable environment, new office, friendly people, good benefits. A feel good place to work. Patient interaction is very positive.

    Cons

    Most co-workers are great and work as a team although there are a few that try to lead by intimidation. Thankfully not many. Overall it's a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with what is going on in the general day to day work flow of your employees.

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

    Pros

    nice office, decent pay, most employees can work with, ok culture, novel product line, great to see patients benefiting from equipment...

    Cons

    very reactive vs. proactive. A lot of "we need this today" at 4:49PM. Competition coming to market- job stability over next few years is uncertain. Stifled by some management that are stuck in outdated ways of doing business.

    Advice to Management

    stop talking so much and start listening to employees - they are your best resource!
