    I have been working at Natus Medical full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is wonderful. Everyone that works for them is great and always so very helpful. The job is very straightforward.

    Cons

    They seem to be a little cheap when it comes to hiring new employees and making new rules and regulations. There is no real chance for advancement through the company unless you are a nurse manager.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your on the ground managers and full-time. They deal with lots of things that you may not know, and so when they ask for help don't look at the dollar amount try to help them fix it.

    I worked at Natus Medical full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Natus Medical provided a good opportunity to learn the ins and outs of Upstream, Downstream and Marketing Communications strategies, processes, and campaigns in an FDA-regulated device industry. In a general sense, middle to upper management cared about their employees given the limited resources for each department, and people found ways to make things work. I did enjoy a very flexible schedule that allowed for a healthy...

    Cons

    Simply put, the company grew faster than the Executive group was wiling to scale for. Growth was achieved by acquiring assets to compensate for an aging product portfolio. After 15+ acquisitions in the last 10 years, recent realignments have cause department restructuring or eliminations across the company. Aging product lines and stagnant development results in continued loss of market share. Due to the rate of acquisitions,...

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent about the direction of the company. Value long term employees. Implement actual career growth paths for younger employees to foster internal development. Focus on product development vs acquisition growth.

    Pros

    Everything you have heard about Natus is true. The top people at this company only care about one thing - profit. Not their customers, their reputation and especially not their employees. Their employees are disposable tools used to achieve profits and nothing more. The moment they think you are useless to them, there is talk of getting rid of you. There are no perks, there is no development and definitely no real growth...

    Cons

    There is nothing good about this company. Even the best employees are turned into sulking sad people because they hate working there and get treated like nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of yourselves and let your knowledgeable, hardworking employees run the company before you run it into the ground.

    Cons

    Extremely poor decision-making by upper management Lack of recognition for very hardworking colleagues Focus on delivering shareholder value, not patient outcomes No understanding by upper management of influence/impact remaining portfolio has on patients, families and healthcare systems

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. They are the heart and soul of the company, and the only reason the company continues to exist. Listen to what they tell you in terms of how to best serve your markets. Trust that they have the wherewithal to what is right and good for both the company and your customers, and empower them to achieve these goals. Stop placing new roadblocks in their way. It should be the job of management to enable...
