    Natera genuinely cares about its employees, and their policies reflect it. Flexible vacation team, amazing salary packages, strong incentives, and a brilliant canteen! Apart from this, their work culture is iconic! You are welcomed into the fold, taught the ropes, and groomed to excel! I had a fantastic stint here.

    I worked at Natera full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unlike companies who promise you the moon and deliver nothing, Natera actually takes its commitments very seriously. Their work culture is world-class, and their incentive programs are brilliant! Considering that their salary packages and structures are already amazing, the incentives motivate you to push harder. I was given ample opportunities to grow via IJPs and otherwise. Excellent place to work hard and reap your rewards.

    Cons

    No, not really at the moment.
