    Pros

    The people are passionate and bright, the technology is awesome, there are so many great things cooking from the business and the product side. The matrix organization is managing many projects efficiently.

    Cons

    There's a lot to get done, but that's also a good thing

    Pros

    Benefits are great, catered lunches and stock options after one year of employment.
    BEST part is Natera is continuing to strive and climb the scientific ladder of DNA molecular testing.

    Cons

    COMMUNICATION from all employees. We all work for the same company, this should not be a difficult task.

    Advice to Management

    SOP'S should be the same for all departments...ex: tardiness, overtime, discounts.......

    Pros

    Great company. Great opportunities. I love that management keeps us in the loop. And look at what we do! We help people!!

    Cons

    Our operating system is less than ideal. We need a computer program that works for us, not against us.

    Pros

    -Great technology
    -Outstanding achievement opportunities coming for not only science but for PATIENTS

    Cons

    -Sales leadership
    -Regardless of your loyalty, tenure, or outstanding performance there will be no reciprocation
    -Would rather cut loose tenured management and reps that have higher salaries from their tenure to answer profitability needs
    -You should not consider this as a long term career move
    -expect no loyalty or commitment back regardless how invested your family is to Natera

    Advice to Management

    -Integrity for what is right
    -Don’t lose or disenfranchise sales mangers and Reps that are believers and committed to Natera’s ultimate goal of being successful

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

    Pros

    Despite the issues they company does make an effort in providing good benefits and try to keep a positive atmosphere, however, finance misses a lot of the experiences of the other departments at Natera. Real drag and dumping ground for company problems, made worse by poor investment in systems and process. Finance leadership is lacking.

    Cons

    Poor leadership from C-Level all the way down.

    Advice to Management

    Need a change in leadership, Finance, Operations and IT.
