    Pros

    This company makes products that matter. CyberKnife and TOmoTHerapy machines are treating cancer patients with the best radiotherapy available. I could work at a company that makes microwave ovens or apps for iPhones but I choose to work at ARAY instead. Not every day of work is glorious, but what makes me get up in the morning and drive to work is knowing that what I do helps people beat cancer.

    Cons

    Accuray is not yet profitable. Its financially stable for years to come at the current burn rate, but it wont take me to retirement until we can do what we do AND be profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and make the decisions that will get in the black

    Pros

    The company has turned a new leaf and is ramping up quickly. Moving from "product out" to "Market In" approach - Aligning more with the needs of the customers. Most of upper management is new and they "get" what it takes to succeed. Tomo acquisition now feels complete and Accuray as "one company" - although some of the Madison/Tomo folks still have some nostalgia

    Cons

    Although most of upper mgmt is new, there are a few senior leaders from past that need to be shown the door...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on flawless execution. Balance the commercial activities with Development for long term growth.

    I was exposed to the executive level and have learned a lot
    from this experience.

    I was working with no group as I only worked with the CFO in this special project for this particular project.

    I have been working at Accuray as a contractor

    Pros

    Making a difference
    Its not only about making money, change lives (purpose in work)
    ROBOTS! Super cool.
    A wide range of jobs for any type of engineer.

    Cons

    Haven't really worked long enough to discover downsides. My work by nature was temporary and thus I didn't stay at Accuray for a long time.
