I love coming to work every day.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Nashua, NH

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

ProsBecause Ektron is a smaller-sized company, my contributions have more of a direct impact on our success.The people I work with are excellent and professional; they are the best! I have creative input and license because they trust me to do a great job. I often wake up early to get to work because I want to. The location in Nashua is great for my commute and also puts me in reach of anything I need or want (such as errands at lunch time). I also think that adjustments to the business in the past couple of years have been very positive, and the revenues are demonstrating that we are on a great track.

ConsSometimes, it has felt like flying crop-dusting (flying by the seat of our pants) but over the last couple of years or so, Ektron has steadily lifted and become airborne (initiating better, more predictable controls) and is growing to another level. Small companies often have ups and downs, but Ektron is making the right decisions and growing and won't be small for much longer.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep hiring the right people with talent and integrity.

Awsome high tech company that has grown the product footprint and position year over year

Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Nashua, NH

I have been working at Ektron full-time for more than 10 years

ProsAmple chances to advance and improve as my own career exemplifies... going on 14 years now.
Amazing vision and top level direction on where Ektron is going as a company based on past success and customer needs... always building new products, fast paced, exciting technology that typically leads the industry.

ConsChange happens fast and the ability to adapt as quickly is a requirement for success.
Up tempo requires commitment and loyalty, must be "all in" to prosper.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, Special kudos to a few departments. New support leadership that launched the portal for customer self service. New agile engineering processes running at a high velocity. Strong go to market plans through partners and the direct sales team.

Ektron is heading down the drain. FAST. Can it be saved?

Development Manager (Former Employee)

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

ProsEktron has a strong leader and visionary at the top, with an excellent development team, and a competitive content management system.

ConsEktron's biggest mistake was bringing executives and sales people from FAST Search, a company best known for its criminal accounting policies. Ektron is strangely proud of all its FAST employees, but the reality is that they are driving out all the high performers. Under the FAST leadership, the company has become like a junior high school, full of cliques. If you are not from FAST, you have no future at Ektron.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou must Chip away the arrogant FAST employees and replace them with ethical leaders who care about restoring the company to its former greatness.

Amazing experience where I grew in my career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

Pros- Fast paced, tech company, willing to take risks
- CEO is visionary and thought leader - he understands the industry, made necessary changes, and advanced the product to the next level
- Product has evolved from simple CMS to a WCM / Digital Experience Management solution
- Took on several different roles which has advanced me in my career
- Product is WAY ahead of its competitors, but it often doesn't get credit for it

Cons- Management changed over the years, but CEO took necessary action to do this (it was needed) - so this actually became a positive rather than a negative but employees had to experience lots of change in little time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
