    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Accuray full-time for more than 3 years

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the people who took the company public cannot manage it as a public company and will inevitably fail. The company needs to bring in professional managers and replace the people currently at the C-Level (CFO already gone, good start) and VP Level. Mid level management is actually OK, just too many of them.
