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

    Pros

    Really good training regimen.

    Cons

    If you are considering this position please be ready to be micro managed! Co-workers will throw you under the bus with any chance to. Also there is not any recognition to the department. Lastly the scheduling is the worst. They will find every excuse to make you work and employees have to resort to calling out to get a day off.

    Advice to Management

    As the company is evolving and growing please be open to employee recommendations. This department is completely understaffed compared to the demand of the position. Employees are under compensated for all the work and responsibilities they have on a day to day schedule.

    I have been working at NxStage

    Pros

    People at the individual contributor level are generally awesome and easy to work with. Still has a startup feel despite the acquisition with Fresenius...although that may change over time.

    Cons

    There are two major challenges here; communication and micromanagement. When it comes to communication, the right information never gets to the right individuals. Not sure if people are intentionally keeping information to themselves or if people are over allocated and are not being effective. As for micromanagement, this is something very prominent here. Managers need to know every detail of every project and... need to be involved in every decision on those projects. Project teams are constantly challenged instead of empowered and more often than not, projects tend to spin instead of making progress.

    I worked at NxStage full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The cycle helps people stay at home. It is a pretty decent machine, comparatively. Vacation was good before the merger. Now, not so good.

    Cons

    Micromanaged about the smallest thing and information is constantly withheld , as if the smallest thing is a big secret that can’t be trusted outside of the clique.

    Advice to Management

    See a trend? Treat people as part of the team and stop micromanaging. Listen to people. You don’t seem to realize the gold you have in employees who never get the opportunity to give good or different ideas. It is always more of the same from the clique.
