The corporate mission and core values. The employees.
Those in management positions who are allowed to bully their employees on a daily basis. They have absolutely ZERO management experience and are only focused on looking good in the eyes of senior management at all costs. They are intimidated by employees reporting to them who have tenure with the company and do everything in their power to belittle, deface and lie about interactions with those employees. Management has no idea about what really is happening in the ranks with their employees. Many have no idea who senior management is because most of them are not in the office or when they are they don't go and walk the departments to see what's really going on. Loyalty and longevity with this company means nothing anymore. Hopefully with the return of the former CEO, things will turn around with this company. Sadly many with years of experience with the company are choosing to move on to the competition.
Advice to Management
Take care of those who built the foundation by which you are successful today. Good luck with digging out of the hole that the IMPAC management put Elekta into. Hire managers with actual management experience who can cultivate and develop employees into next steps and positions.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Elekta (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2013.
It was a good cross-section of different groups that I would interact with on a daily basis. They asked questions that seemed to be geared more toward a personality fit although the agile manager asked very specific agile questions to test my understanding. The rest were fairly standard questions, biggest challenge you overcame, how would you handle a difficult personality and others.
It was fine although I did feel that the initial offer was fairly low. it was all handled in a very professional manner.
