    Pros

    The integrity and scientific intelligence of the founder started SNC on a great track - as a former customer and now employee, I can assure you that they make great products. There are core values in our designs that we stick to - and in general we start from scratch with innovative ideas instead of creating "me too" products. SNC is the leader in medical physics equipment in my opinion because they stick to their values. We also have a CEO who's very energetic, driven, and open to feedback, which helps greatly.

    Cons

    It's growing fast, so their are some growing pains, but management is listening to suggestions - that's all you can ask.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to serving patients and physicists with the best products, and I don't see how you can go wrong.

    I have been working at Sun Nuclear full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment with really great associates (below the Middle Mgt. Level). People work really well together when given the opportunity to. The environment is ethnically and culturally diverse with very intelligent and talented individuals. The Sales & Support areas work really well together.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from the top level of the company leads to a lot gossip about the company direction & future. People have resigned, but there is a sense that some of these people may have been forced out which leads to more gossip. The Associates feel that the company leaders only care about money and nothing else. The quality level of the hardware & software products has decreased greatly due to a lack of testing prior to product release. The feeling among some associates & some customers is that the first people to buy/use a new product are more like beta testers who find the bugs & errors that need to be fixed. Morale is horrible and seems to be getting worse. It is sad that a once great company is now something mediocre at best and getting worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for honest feedback at the associate level. A suggestion box does not inspire people to truly give their honest opinions & suggestions.

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn about Radiation therapy. Employees do there hard and put alot of effort to get the job done.

    Cons

    Any positive feedback that was entered by other people at sun nuclear, were told by management to put good reviews. No opportunity for growth. Lack of Communication. Managers are not very supportive of their employees. Too many changes happen daily and does not get communicated.

    Tuition that they are offer is B.S. They have so many restriction before you can get qualified for it. There are no good training.

    Recently had a laid off and let go about 20 people. They will make you work overtime. When it comes to raises, they are very cheap.

    Do not work here if I were you or you will regret it. Last year, they had 20% of people quit and most of them were new employees.

    Company is very old school. They are not innovative at all. They are only about profit. Bonus weren't that great at all. Many complaints from the employees.

    Highly recommend staying away or you will regret it towards the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage your employees and learn to be a good manager.

    Pros

    Amazing associates who honestly try every day to improve Quality Assurance Hardware & Software related to Radiation Oncology. The new Manufacturing/Production Facility is fantastic.

    Cons

    Twenty layoffs (really firings since these people will not be asked back if things get better) in February 2015 because the company grew too fast and now the operating expenses are exceeding sales. The individual departments never had budgets and now there is the realization that after spend spend spending there need to be cuts. To meet budget cuts, projects will be abandoned which will lead to more layoffs. Currently there is a fundamental distrust of anyone in management (middle all the way to sr.) and the feeling that the associates are being lied to regarding future firings and the health of the company. In an attempt to stop the freefall of morale the CEO & HR Mgr have scheduled 25 person employee roundtables where they will try to collect info & understand why things have gotten so bad. I highly doubt that people will truly share how they feel when there is zero anonymity and the high likelihood of whatever criticism getting back to the associates individual dept mgt. This leads to people filtering their opinions, not speaking out, and the time spent will be wasted for all parties involved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None...This ship is sinking and I'm getting off soon.

    Pros

    When I first joined back in 2008 it seemed to be a great company to work for. Great benefits, great people and I used to look forward to going to work and making a difference. Company was approx 40-50 strong but over my 3-4 yrs the company exploded to approx 140 and it just became top heavy - all management who seem to be just in it for them selves and rubbing shoulders with the Company owner and Son (CEO). It's their private play ground and can do what ever they choose. Company starting to cut back on benefits or they got where they were not worth having. Salaries were a joke and did not keep up with the market rate. Lots of back stabbing and Chinese whispers going on. Company moral dropped rock bottom. No communication from management - do I need to go on......

    Cons

    None anymore but used to be health care, holiday, bonusus

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stopping paying your selves 1 million dollar + bonuses and spread the wealth to the minions that actually do the work and got you where you are at today......

    Stop burying your heads in the sand wake up and smell the coffee!!! Company moral is terrible........

    Awesome company if your on the in.

    Cons

    Management whims are more important than the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up, be more concerned for long term employees, and their needs and growth. Get over yourselves, your not important... Remember that, your in control you don't have to over controls, allow others to grow, encourage it, benefit from it. Don't be men with out vision or concern for others, narcissism is a sin.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck and you get to work with some highly intelligent and talented people.

    Cons

    The company at one time was a four to five star rating however over the last two years it has become a depressing place to work. Management lacks the skill set and knowledge necessary to build and support their teams. After dangling holiday bonuses over employees heads all year long management incorporated a system that 'dinged' employees, significantly cutting their bonuses last minute and then refused to explain the rating system they used. People had their bonuses cut by up to 80% a few days before Christmas without warning or justification however management bonuses of up to $35k were not cut. A team is a reflection of their leader and clearly the leaders are failing.

    Communication is a major flaw, there's a complete lack of it. One never knows what to expect when walking through the doors on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start over, take a real look at your current employees knowledge of products and procedures along with experience and promote accordingly. Give your employees strong leaders that they will respect and eagerly follow. Get back to the roots and take the reins back, starting at the golden palace (HR).

    Disappointing

    Pros

    There are some very talented people working here that deserve way better.

    Cons

    This company was based on integrity, heart, and passion to do the right thing. It's no longer led with integrity, there is no transparency, and they no longer value the people that have dedicated their lives to supporting this cause. Everyone is set up to fail because they will not face the issues crippling their organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "secret sauce" was when the focus and mission was on making the right product to do the right thing and honoring the incredible value added by the team making it happen. The moment it became about the money, not the employees or the quality, the secret sauce was lost. There is no more authenticity left.

    I worked at Sun Nuclear

    Pros

    the only pro to working with this company is you get to work with medical devices that can treat cancer patients. Unfortunately, they can't do it well, so it should not be considered.

    Cons

    The management and human resource department at this company run the whole show. If either of them do not like you, it is like high school and you get put on the crappy job team, with the crappy travel, and crappy pay.
