    I have been working at Elekta full-time

    Pros

    Some caring, thoughtful, highly educated, smart people work in N. Amer. and throughout the organization but they aren't enough to save it from senior management that focuses on maintaining status quo, short-term financial performance, and a culture of the clique.

    Cons

    N. Amer: if you aren't "In" with the right managers, you are sunk, esp. in marketing. Toe the line and suck up is the name of the game. As a new hire you'll be jollied and welcomed but, soon enough, you'll be marginalized if you express the least amount of independent thinking or, worse!, dare to critique any senior manager. There's no "getting your back" here, you will be on your own. Also, in Atlanta, redneck old-boy narrow-mindedness and bigotry is tolerated, esp on the part of long-term employees- but those same people will carefully guard their behavior when the Euro ppl are in-house, you can be sure of that! No opportunity for career progression in mktg, period.

    Advice to Management

    Why bother, they won't hear it or read it anyway.

    I worked at Elekta full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and great job for those seeking routine work.

    Cons

    Country bumpkin mentality and narrow minded managers. No room for creativity or outside of the box thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Time to do some house cleaning in your North American headquarters and to bring in some new talent.
