    Pros

    Very cool technology: Accuray builds and sells a medical instrument that destroys cancer tumors.

    Cons

    Poor company culture, inept senior management, low salaries. This company could be great, so it's just disappointing and frustrating that the management team can't make it grow and be successful. Lots of empire building (especially new CCO) and roadblocking between departments. Communication almost doesn't exist. Bloated management structure.

    Advice to Management

    Resign! ... or wake up and look at the cold hard facts: you are not succeeding. Change starts at the top.

    Pros

    high quality products that make a real difference in the quality of life for those fighting cancer

    Cons

    senior management, senior management, senior management. They are inconsistent, act like they are infallible and individual contributors aren't of value. Hollow talk of 'best practices' while implementing confused, inefficient processes and tools while not listening to feedback because it doesn't fit their views.

    Advice to Management

    good management earns respect, recognizes and rewards loyal employees at all levels. Arrogance and demanding respect while failing to appreciate currently committed employees will backfire. The majority of employees I know would not recommend Accuray as an employer despite a handsome referral program.
