Great company in theory, bloated and lacking true leadership in practice

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Lawrence, MA (US)

I worked at NxStage full-time for more than a year

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

ConsComplacent 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 Senior ManagementJust 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at NxStage

ProsA great product. Passionate, smart employees.

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

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

OK to work for...

Analyst (Current Employee)
Lawrence, MA (US)

I have been working at NxStage full-time for more than 3 years

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

Consvery 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 Stifled by some management that are stuck in outdated ways of doing business.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 Senior Managementstop talking so much and start listening to employees - they are your best resource!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at NxStage full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLife changing therapy for chronic kidney failure patients

ConsUnable to sell daily therapy because of government reimbursement

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed a fresh outlook on how to move the company forward when competitors to market. Gone are the days of being the market leader with no competition.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
