      I have been working at Accuray full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Nice, competent people working hard to get things done. Not a lot of drama. (Adults work here.) Good technology. Good pay, benefits, infrastructure. Opportunities for flexibility, reasonable hours and advancement if you’re good at what you do and are productive and collaborative.

      Cons

      Niche and specialty products in competitive market creates a lot of financial pressure in a public company. Impacts projects, people and priorities which sometimes change erratically. Upper management is a little distant. Industry is technical and business is complex, worldwide.

      Advice to Management

      Pick a story and stick to it.

        Fails to meet business model on a continuing basis due to allowing unmotivated individuals to hold and keep upper management positions.
