    - Management team that is identifying gaps and bringing in new resources to address the needs

    Cons

    - Smaller organization among much larger size competition
    - Resource limitations due to smaller size

    I have been working at Accuray full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Innovative
    New management structure with growth being top of mind
    Fun and cutting edge
    Patient first mentality

    Cons

    The only downside after a year of being here is we all want to do more for the company and the patients who are treated on our systems. So keeping our efforts within our bandwidth guidelines is a challenge, but a challenge we all welcome. The energy is so great here and quite different from even just a year ago.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! The direction is so positive and the people here are excited with the innovation we have all worked hard at achieving. Other advice is to continue to see the value in our core teams and grow as needed. So far 2017 has been a strong signal to the value of the internal teams and where this company is going.

    Pros

    Best and differentiated products, making a difference in saving cancer patients' lives. If you have a family member or friend with cancer, you will appreciate the impact this company is making.

    Cons

    Too much turnover and reorg every year.

    Some of the best leaders and passionate workers were driven out. Deteriorated the culture of the company and teams, which is often overlooked in businesses but vital for small companies battling Goliaths

    Advice to Management

    Keep your best coaches and players

    I worked at Accuray full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People at lower levels and medical affairs, service, and clinical specialist areas are very friendly, supportive, and passionate about their work.

    Cons

    Corporate HQ Management does not care about their employees, only where their next paycheck comes from. They have no concerns throwing their employees under the bus when something goes wrong and have no support or accountability for their own actions. Since departure of COO, it's turned into a club where your job is only safe if you know someone, and you will be let go without an exit interview, without any reasoning. Turnover rate has been high for a number of years and will not change anytime soon.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people. Your company is not going to grow or be successful if you only show appreciation for the people with the highest paychecks.

    I worked at Accuray full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology and plenty of smart, passionate employees.

    Cons

    - Choked by loads of ineffective, incompetent upper and middle management who perfectly demonstrate the Peter Principle.

    - Barebones work environment.

    - Lack of company culture.

    - Lack of recognition from management.

    Advice to Management

    Cull the herd. There are far too many of you and you've had plenty of time to lead the company in the right direction, which you've almost impressively have sunk into the ground. Also, since there is no more manufacturing there, close the Sunnyvale offices.
