    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.

    I worked at NxStage full-time

    Pros

    Good pay for little to no experience. Long training period. 4 months before you actually do any work.

    Cons

    Poor product leading to frustrated end users which leads to tech support being company punching bag. Awful scheduling with rotating weekend shifts in exchange for days off mid-week. About to be bought out by bigger company with uncertain future. Employees were offered bonus if staying until merger.

    Advice to Management

    No one wants a Tuesday off in exchange for working Saturday or Sunday. Stop micromanaging.

    Pros

    Good compensation and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Quite a few employees are promoted to management based on length of employment and not experience of education. They are learning to be managers on the job through trial and error and that can be quite frustrating. The office layout is very poorly designed. If you have an office with a door you are extremely lucky. If you are in a cube, it's different story. While some cubes offer privacy, many do not; therefore,...

    Advice to Management

    It's a problem if you have a full=time employee who has less than 20 hours of work a week and plays all day long. Perhaps after the merger, Fresenius management will fix these kind of problems. It's what I am hoping for, otherwise, I'll be looking for new employment in the next year or so.
