    I have been working at NxStage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Meaningful work, and most groups have great leaders. Recently more opportunity for growth available and some more cross functional projects

    Cons

    Lack of systems and resources makes it hard to spend time doing things that benefit the bottom line. Somewhat difficult to find help.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key

    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.

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

    Pros

    It’s rare to find a company that is not only a leader in technology, helping thousands of people and making a difference in countless lives, but is also a great place to work.

    The office, which resides in one of the recently renovated mill buildings in Lawrence is updated and bright.

    NxStage offers great benefits and seems to always be looking for different ways to show it’s appreciation for its employees…whether it be summer BBQ’s or winter ping pong tournaments.

    Cons

    As is the case with many companies that are growing, trying to scale processes that worked on a smaller scale to a larger size can create challengs
