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

    Pros

    Great technology
    Lots of opportunities to learn
    Can get lots of things done, since you are surrounded by go-getters
    Great teamwork and enjoyed solving problems with fellow engineers

    Cons

    Management failed to identify talents within the group and help grow the people within the group.
    Applying fear tactics by some management folks (not all) causes people within that group not be able to raise any opinions or share any ideas freely.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen to the engineers and have appreciation for the knowledge, vision and hard work that they bring to the table
