    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.

    take good care of employees and customers. willing to make tough decisions and trdeoffs to get profitable. We are no good to anyone if we run out of money.

    the value proposition of Accuray products is clear for a new market that isnt locked into legacy products. Its like trying to talk your company from switching from PCs to Macs.

    Pros

    Great hours, great pay, comprehensive and affordable health care benefits. The leadership we have in place make good decisions for the betterment of the company and it's employees. They've also done a great job at making the company more transparent.

    Cons

    Certain departments lack the cohesiveness that others do. Not everyone has the same experience as it really depends on what section of the company you're in. Because the company hasn't been profitable there is always a lingering fear that your job could be lost on any given day. This fear has been lessened by the backing of Wallstreet and the change in leadership over the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing. Transparency, honesty, it all counts to us. Thank you for making Accuray//Tomotherapy a great place to work.

    I have been working at Accuray full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company makes products that matter. CyberKnife and TOmoTHerapy machines are treating cancer patients with the best radiotherapy available. I could work at a company that makes microwave ovens or apps for iPhones but I choose to work at ARAY instead. Not every day of work is glorious, but what makes me get up in the morning and drive to work is knowing that what I do helps people beat cancer.

    Cons

    Accuray is not yet profitable. Its financially stable for years to come at the current burn rate, but it wont take me to retirement until we can do what we do AND be profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Bite the bullet and make the decisions that will get in the black
