Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Nashua, NH

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

Pros

The product is well respected in the industry and in 2012 has become more innovative. New management has breathed new life into the company. The company's direction is exciting and people seem to be working hard. Management team consists of proven professionals from the space and its no longer a family run business.

Cons

Office doesn't have a lot of perks (free soda, food). There was a LOT of change in 2012, though I have much more faith in the company and direction now. Old sales talent was at times embarrassing, though they're all gone now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep investing in engineering and sales.

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

    Pros

    There really isn't much about this company that's a pro. You'll get to work with a product that's held together with bubble gum & duct tape, and a management team that can't seem to see the writing on the wall in the industry. Don't be fooled by analyst ratings, it's all smoke & mirrors.

    Cons

    - A product that only works correctly in very specific environments, which is not "real world".
    - A sham of an ecommerce product.
    - Poor commission plans for sales reps.
    - Blatant favoritism by management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell now, when there's still some perceived value in the Ektron name

    Pros

    Solid product suite which is well respected in its class.

    Cons

    No real opportunity for advancement to management level. C-suite are relatives for the most part.
    Compensation not competitive but good for those trying to break in to the high-tech market.
    Culture is more like you are working for 'them', not working to build a company together as a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the favoritism and work on finding each persons unique abilites, then offer them a path to advance within the company.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
