    I have been working at Accuray full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Get to work from home and pay is pretty good. Can mostly set you own schedule.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work late and on some weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what FSEs have to say.

    "Challenging but rewarding"

      Current Employee - Software Engineer 

      I have been working at Accuray full-time

      Pros

      Get treated well and have the opportunity to take on challenges

      Cons

      Not enough support roles left due to layoffs so too many people asking for assistance really throws off focus.

      I worked at Accuray full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Great products that the employees are proud to be building.

      Cons

      Very top heavy with managers at too many levels. Way too many managers that don't really contribute to the company's bottom line or add value to the products. The stock value is non-existent. This is very defeating for any employee that's trying to contribute to the overall success of the company.

      Advice to Management

      Over 7 years now since buying TomoTherapy; something needs to change at the upper levels to make the company profitable. Senior people are leaving because of the lack of confidence and trust in management. Managers need to better communicate with the employees doing the real work everyday and respect their efforts. People can't work efficiently when all aspects of the business are in some form of chaos. The people in...

      I have been working at Accuray full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Cool technology, one of the best corporate missions one could have, still small enough that one person can make an impact.

      Cons

      There are some "fiefdoms" to deal with. Company is still struggling financially somewhat.

      Advice to Management

      Follow through on initiatives...people won't buy in to new initiatives if previous ones were left by the side of the road.

      Pros

      Competitive pay for a medical device company. Cool Technology

      Cons

      Working almost every other weekend and lots of late nights during the week for field service seems to be the norm for this company. Very poor work life balance. The company has had 2 layoffs since I was hired 9 months ago. Also lots of problems with bad parts and out of date procedures that frankly are useless. It's like trying to fix something without using your hands. It doesn't work very well. I can't wait to...

      I worked at Accuray

      Pros

      Product has the ability to make an impact in patient's lives.

      Cons

      Just about everything else. Poor quality management is widespread. Deteriorating company culture. High turnover. Very low morale in the remaining workforce. Creativity and desire to build a great product for patients is driven out of employees. You would think it should be difficult for a health care company to not be a fulfilling place to work. Sadly, this is a truly impressive feat of destruction!

      Advice to Management

      I suppose it is easy to point the finger at management, however, in this case, maybe taking a hard look at the culture created by current management would be worthwhile. Remove the most toxic managers. Create an environment people want to work in.
