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

    Pros

    It was a good company with a good purpose to help cure cancer.

    Cons

    The IMPAC managers will be the death of Elekta region NA. Unless you are part of the in crowd you will never get promoted or even get a raise. The mgrs from IMPAC will even allow thier friends to quit come back and get promoted with a fat raise. In addition, the mangers from IMPAC are not very smart, in fact they are morons with huge ego's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FIRE ALL IMPAC MANAGERS before region NA goes out of business.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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