    Pros

    Great hours, great pay, comprehensive and affordable health care benefits. The leadership we have in place make good decisions for the betterment of the company and it's employees. They've also done a great job at making the company more transparent.

    Cons

    Certain departments lack the cohesiveness that others do. Not everyone has the same experience as it really depends on what section of the company you're in. Because the company hasn't been profitable there is always a lingering fear that your job could be lost on any given day. This fear has been lessened by the backing of Wallstreet and the change in leadership over the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. Transparency, honesty, it all counts to us. Thank you for making Accuray//Tomotherapy a great place to work.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to take on new areas if one is proactive. Mostly good people and trying to help each other out.

    Cons

    Struggling to generate profits, so there's always the overhang of restructuring and cost cutting.

  6. The CyberKnife M6 is the most reliable system for cancer treatment. I would be absolutely confident on the outcome.

    Pros

    The Cyberknife engineering, physics and manufacturing is first class.

    Cons

    The Cyberknife is being moved to Madison where it gets to -14 deg F and people in Sunnyvale are being made redundant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't outsource.

    Pros

    Great mission and great products

    Cons

    Leadership continues to change. The culture is very top-down and does not empower or listen to middle management or technical leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Listen

    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

    TomoTherapy provided for an excellent work/life balance. Also, I really felt like I was part of helping patients even from behind the scenes.

    Cons

    When the company was purchased by Accuray, everything changed. It was more about the management and internal politics.

    Advice to Management

    Growth is good, but remember those who helped get there! It's still great to see how much the company's products help patients.
