    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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

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

    Pros

    The company has turned a new leaf and is ramping up quickly. Moving from "product out" to "Market In" approach - Aligning more with the needs of the customers. Most of upper management is new and they "get" what it takes to succeed. Tomo acquisition now feels complete and Accuray as "one company" - although some of the Madison/Tomo folks still have some nostalgia

    Cons

    Although most of upper mgmt is new, there are a few senior leaders from past that need to be shown the door...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on flawless execution. Balance the commercial activities with Development for long term growth.

    I worked at Accuray full-time

    Pros

    I was exposed to the executive level and have learned a lot
    from this experience.

    Cons

    I was working with no group as I only worked with the CFO in this special project for this particular project.

    I have been working at Accuray as a contractor

    Pros

    Making a difference
    Its not only about making money, change lives (purpose in work)
    ROBOTS! Super cool.
    A wide range of jobs for any type of engineer.

    Cons

    Haven't really worked long enough to discover downsides. My work by nature was temporary and thus I didn't stay at Accuray for a long time.
