I have been working at Elekta part-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good values and interesting line of work to be involved in. Great opportunities if you like to travel

Cons

Grown by acquisition so structure and process still disjointed. However, programmes in place to address this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work harder on the integration. Too many chiefs and not enough indians

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

    Pros

    People really do love their jobs here, and it shows in day to day dealings. Coworkers are actually friends and I always had a great time. I loved this job.

    Cons

    People joke that you need to leave the company and come back to get a promotion, and it's sadly true. People in management seldom leave so there is little opportunity for growth from within. Salary is lower than the rest of the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your good employees or keep watching them leave.

    I have been working at Elekta as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of friendly staff, and good opportunities if you are willing to move between specialist areas. The structure of the company is improving thanks to recent changes, with clear pay banding etc.

    Cons

    A bureaucratic culture. Promotion within a specialist area can be difficult (dead man's shoes). A lot of overtime can be necessary near deadlines. Travel can be difficult, even from London, unless you are willing to relocate near the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what the middle management aren't telling you.
