    I worked at Elekta full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Deeply talented technical teams. Installs, Service, & User training are at the top of spectrum in the US where Elekta is losing share.

    Cons

    Sales organization and sales leadership have been unstable the last 4 years. Organizationally high turnover with no culture, an HR function that is embarrassing in their incompetence. Integrity an issue with current leadership to include Sales, Finance Legal . Legal is the only function not to turnover in the last 4 years so time to clean that expensive $ team up.

    I worked at Elekta full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There have been many employees that leave this company and then come back. Every company has issues but I feel that Elekta would listen to their employees and try and do the right thing. Just because one employee thinks they have a better idea, doesn't mean it would be right for the entire company. Benefits are great compared to other companies.

    Cons

    They seem to promote without posting positions.

    Pros

    Commitment to curing cancer. Good co-workers. New building, in a great part of town.

    Cons

    Know what you’re getting into. Overcommitment is the norm. Short-term decisions continually over time have led to high technical debt and then gets blamed on engineering. Can’t commit to a long-term roadmap or strategy. Plenty of opportunities to succeed. Expect unrealistic deadlines from executives that have no idea how software is made. Continually reorganizing hoping that it will solve problems. Driving away top talent.
