Great company to work for
Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GA1 December 2016
Elekta is a very good company to work for. Management is making the effort to listen to the employees and are actually doing something about it.

Great people to work with.
Change in management has boosted employee morale.
Increase in internal promotion opportunities.

When you love what you do it doesn't feel like work.

Unfortunately the disgruntled employees are usually the ones writing bad feedback.

Elekta has made significant improvements over the last few years to boost morale and increase employee engagement..

Very productive, motivated employee's who were proud of the company they work for.
service media, marketing (Former Employee) –  Crawley25 October 2016
There was no such thing as a typical day at work, everyday was a new day at Elekta. Employee's put their hearts into the company, creating a new challenge everyday.

The nature of being under Cancer care, marketing had the strong tool of driving emotional intelligence to the customers hearts. I felt that Elekta had created emotional marketing strategies through their blogs with customer experiences, successfully transforming these touching stories into trusting brand implementation approaches to the customer.
Pros
Private Agency events- provided catering and valuable training all day.

Great potential, squandered ....
Director (Current Employee) –  US28 July 2016
Great people, products and opportunity to join the fight against cancer, but many years of chasing a good stock price at the expense of scaling to remain strong has pushed the company to a bad place. Pity ....

********* (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NV21 July 2015
If you want to join a team that has constant turnover and reorgs then Elekta is your place. Co-workers are all great and hard working people. But the better employee you are the more you get taken advantage of. Management abuses employees and does not care how much of your personal time they take away from you. They also do not care if you go the extra mile. Not to mention they are ALWAYS understaffed. There is never a light at the end of the tunnel. Using common sense is not the Elekta way.
Pros
Co-workers and customers
Cons
Upper and Lower Management, below standard pay rates, over-worked, under-staffed.

Long time employee and have learned to go with the flow.
Currently in a sales support role (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MO3 June 2015
Addressing any pressing emails. Read google alerts for industry news and leads.
Run the win loss report and report monthly analysis.
I've learned to go with the flow
Management is always changing
My co-workers are great
The hardest part of my job is getting answers from sales reps in a timely manner to meet my deadlines.
The most enjoyable part has been traveling around the country going to sales and marketing meetings, and traveling with the sales reps to facilities to demo our product.
Pros
Contributing to the greater good in the industry. And Casual attire
Cons
The company has offices all over the world and is difficult to communicate

Geweldig product, veel interne organisatorische uitdigingen
Marketing Director (Current Employee) –  Veenendaal9 December 2016
Elekta ontwikkelt en verkoopt innovatieve producten in de oncologie en daarme een zeer mooi werkveld dat veel motivatie geeft. Helaas is de interne organisatie niet optimaal, veel processen en werkwijzen verouderd en is er nog steeds een grote weerstand tegen veranderen.
Pros
Product & werkveld
Cons
