    I have been working at Accuray full-time for more than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Accuray

    Pros

    The product and people who work here are great. There are many hard working resourceful people working here.

    Cons

    Training is non-existent and most of the company is run inefficiently with very little structure. There are many key individuals in Accuray who hold are struggling to hold the company together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance and compensation need to be examined. I would not advise any friends to work at Accuray.
