    I have been working at Elekta full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to make decisions and order parts as needed. Great group of people on the service side of the organization always willing to help when needed.

    Cons

    Parts are not always available when needed. Seems like each region has different expectations depending on who the manager is. Way too much restructuring goes on. Different managers and sales people almost every year. The customer does not have anyone but the service guy to build a relationship with.

    Advice to Management

    I feel like, the only reason there is a constant change within management is, the only way for someone to get a decent pay raise is by a change in job title. There should be some incentives in place to leave people excel at their job, not to always want to change their job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Elekta (Sunnyvale, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied online and got a call from the Elekta recruiter, which was followed by a telephonic interview that went very well. After 2-3 days I got a call for an onsite interview with the hiring managers and a panel interview. Interview process was cool and relaxed. I got the offer next week after 5 days or so. They asked mostly scenario based questions.
