Former Employee - Senior Marketing Manager in Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at Elekta full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

People really do love their jobs here, and it shows in day to day dealings. Coworkers are actually friends and I always had a great time. I loved this job.

Cons

People joke that you need to leave the company and come back to get a promotion, and it's sadly true. People in management seldom leave so there is little opportunity for growth from within. Salary is lower than the rest of the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote your good employees or keep watching them leave.

    I worked at Elekta full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Corporate office is in Stockholm which is a great city to visit. Compensation and benefit programs are competitive (but poorly administered and expensive).

    Cons

    A very short term management focus driven by quarterly earnings and the stock market. NA management dominated and defined by former Impac Medical alumni resulting in limited opportunity and relevance to those that are not part of this inner circle and their friends. Low morale is pervsive in most areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cash out and move on.

    I worked at Elekta full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The majority of the employees on the lower levels are nice people - there is a sense of fatalism in that nothing positive gets done and no one can get ahead. People joke on a daily basis about needing to find a new job to get a promotion.

    Cons

    Senior management is totally disconnected from employees. There are mass exodus resignations and it still doesn't get noticed by senior level executives. People who stay are happy with the status quo; people who leave are the ones who tried to do good/implement change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep good employees and stop promoting your friends.
