    NxStage is an exciting company to work for, lead be great management and an incredible CEO. Work is challenging and employees share a good work/life balance. Co-workers are talented with no dead weight. 10 people accomplish tasks at NxStage that require 20 people at most companies. People are passionate and always focused on improving processes and the products,

    Located in Lawrence, MA. Business segments spread out over 5 floors reducing face time with other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop valuing your employees and showing them your appreciation for what they accomplish. Especially those that have shown commitment to NxStage for many years. They have a wealth of knowledge and history that is hard to replace and they keep the NxStage engine finely tuned.

    Pros

    Great culture, mission and leadership. Very little political jockeying. Flexible with time and needs outside of work. Emphasis on promotion from within.

    Information systems are a little outdated. It can be hard to get right communication. As with any growing company it can be a challenge to scale up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Never lose the culture of innovation and the notion that the people matter. Continue to stay in touch with employee concerns.

    Pros

    Becoming an employee here at NxStage has been a wonderful step in developing my career. Coming from working in mostly a hospital setting, I was nervous about transitioning into this growing corporate company. My nerves have since calmed - thanks to the informational and smooth hiring process, the wonderful work environment, and spectacular co workers. This job is a perfect fit for me and I truly feel those working in HR are determined to help you find the right fit for your growth and development. NxStage is a company I am proud to say I am a part of!

    Cons

    I can not think of any negatives.

    Pros

    -GREAT experience. The people who work at NxStage are incredibly talented, professional and smart! They treated me with respect during the entire process. They were very clear that not only were they interviewing me, but I was interviewing THEM. They also made it very clear that they're looking for the right people, not to fill a role.

    Cons

    - There are not many. They commute can be a challenge in the summer. But, this has been identified as a problem. So, flexibility is built in to the roles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for the right people and treating your employees with respect!

    Excellent environment.
    People from different origins.
    Continous growth of the company
    All the employees get a chance to work independently for the progress of the company.

    Cons

    There are no downside of working at NXstage Medical. It gave me an opportunity as an intern to learn some of the concepts and help them. And now I am a full-time employee of Nxstage Medical. I did not find any downside working here.
