    I have been working at Natera full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Natera has been incredibly responsible and supportive during the coronavirus outbreak. They were among the first to ask people to work from home if they could. The benefits are good, including a good stock purchase program where you can purchase stock at a 15% discount. In my group at least the management team is very supportive.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve- expectation of being up to speed very quickly.

    I worked at Natera full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Biotech is a vast industry with numerous companies to choose from. I’m not exaggerating, but Natera is easily one of the best companies around. Their products and tech are awe-inspiring. They genuinely care about their customers and craft products that solve critical issues. For the first time in my career, I was proud of the work we were doing. There are plenty of perks and advantages from an employee standpoint, but to me, making a difference mattered most. Natera is a pioneer.

    Cons

    None I could find any cons.

    Pros

    While most companies exploit employees and don’t care about their well-being, Natera is the opposite. A company that lives by its fundamentals and does so effortlessly. I was delighted to be part of a company that refuses politics, encourages merit, and helps build efficient teams. Excellent canteen, genuine perks, and flexible vacation time. To sum it up, it was amazing!

    Cons

    I hope management considers holding more employee-engagement activities.
