    Pros

    The company has a great mission that has an amazing impact on the lives of people. People there are committed to improve outcomes for patients

    Cons

    The company faces strong competition from entrenched competitors making it difficult to demonstrate the differentiated and better products and services that they offer.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to drive the adoption of this technology in the many hospitals and clinics around the globe in order to fulfill your mission

    I have been working at Accuray full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company is currently transitioning to a matrix style "adult" company after the Accuray-TomoTherapy merger where both were still running as start ups. Lots of growing pains but also lots of opportunity. Everyone knows they are making a difference and has kept me through even the worst times with this company. Overall, its the people who make a good place to work and there are some of the best here.

    Cons

    There are still a few very toxic managers left and its taking too long to get them out. Cutting to profitability never works but they keep trying. Partly due to how FDA regulates medical devices but also partly due to executive ignorance, but the company still does not have a handle on managing/planning software products - its gotten a lot better but this growing pain is pretty painful. Change is happening but its slow, so know what you are getting into and ask about corporate growth progress.

    Advice to Management

    Look into your micro-managing front line managers and remove them, they are toxic to a good culture. Continue to care and try.
