    Pros

    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.

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

    Pros

    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,

    Cons

    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.

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

    Pros

    nice office, decent pay, most employees can work with, ok culture, novel product line, great to see patients benefiting from equipment...

    Cons

    very reactive vs. proactive. A lot of "we need this today" at 4:49PM. Competition coming to market- job stability over next few years is uncertain. Stifled by some management that are stuck in outdated ways of doing business.

    Advice to Management

    stop talking so much and start listening to employees - they are your best resource!

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

    Pros

    The people at NxStage are great. I have never worked with a more passionate group of people. The culture is very positive and the senior management does a great job of describing their vision.

    Cons

    The office is in Lawrence, MA and the open spaces where the cubes are is loud.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the family feel. Keep pushing forward. We have a great therapy and I am confident that we will make HHD grow.

    Pros

    A great product. Passionate, smart employees.

    Cons

    Highly political senior management team. CEO has his favorites. A few senior team members can be condescending and nasty.

    Advice to Management

    Your management team should reflect the behaviors that you want to see in the rest of the employee base.

    Pros

    Comfortable environment, new office, friendly people, good benefits. A feel good place to work. Patient interaction is very positive.

    Most co-workers are great and work as a team although there are a few that try to lead by intimidation. Thankfully not many. Overall it's a great place to work.

    Get more involved with what is going on in the general day to day work flow of your employees.

    Pros

    Company provides a service that has an amazing impact on on improving the quality of life for the dialysis patients that use it. Extremely rewarding to see the positive change it can make.

    Cons

    Did not believe the company was making the right long term commercial decisions. It is an R&D company and struggles with optimizing the commercial opportunity.

    I worked at NxStage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively flexible hours, good pay, beautiful facility, good effort in trying to "rally the troops" to change renal care.

    Cons

    Complacent engineering management, no true direction or project management leaves engineers and projects running in circles and wasting huge amounts of time and money.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been at the company since the beginning doesn't make them a good manager. Re-assess project management and lead engineers if you really want to get the next level projects moving.
