    Pros

    Cool technology and product – non-invasive treatment for cancers.

    Cons

    Engineering organization has little ability to do original product development due to poor leadership, ignorance and political maneuvering. Bloated, bureaucratic middle management and ineffective business processes throughout the firm. Extreme short-term emphasis in decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of half the people with VP, SVP, director or manager in their title and hold those who remain accountable. Revise bonus and option plan to improve incentives for long term performance of the firm.

    Pros

    Laid back enviroment, not much concern on whether you even show up for work on any given day. Just call in just before start time and inform management that you are not coming into work that day.

    Cons

    Does anyone know what they are doing or managing? Total chaos as to the current management team, high employee turnover. Lack of focus,

    Pros

    Great technology; fantastic mission (fighting cancer is a fantastic thing); great people; fun place to work; new CEO, and therefore some new policies

    I worked at Accuray full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Best two products (CK and TomoTherapy) in the industry ... trying to defeat the Varian marketing machine.

    Cons

    Too many years of a leadership structure that assumed they could just have the best technology and ignore what customers were telling them ... believe new CEO sees this and may be the way forward if he listens to more "feet on the ground" around the country ... and not the newest polished MBA who thinks they know what is going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your experienced folks in the field ... you'll be surprised what the customer is telling you.
