    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Accuray full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Outstanding technology that can make an impact on patients, great people working with you and driving to the same goal of fighting cancer, management seems to be listening, making hard choices to do the right thing and keep the company going in the right direction. This may not have been true in the past but definitely seems the case as of the past 6 -12 months.

    Cons

    The underdog (I like that - only the scrappy and extremely perseverant need apply). Also fighting against huge inertia of old perceptions of company and technology in the market - most people I talk to haven’t heard about updates the company has made for more than 7-10 years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the efforts to listen to your teams about what is going on and moving forward. I feel like we’re on the right track.

        I have been working at Accuray full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Nice, competent people working hard to get things done. Not a lot of drama. (Adults work here.) Good technology. Good pay, benefits, infrastructure. Opportunities for flexibility, reasonable hours and advancement if you’re good at what you do and are productive and collaborative.

        Cons

        Niche and specialty products in competitive market creates a lot of financial pressure in a public company. Impacts projects, people and priorities which sometimes change erratically. Upper management is a little distant. Industry is technical and business is complex, worldwide.

        Advice to Management

        Pick a story and stick to it.

          Great pay Awesome benefits Great business model Great technology Good opportunities for movement Great culture, if you like a laid back work place Fun people

          Cons

          Fails to meet business model on a continuing basis due to allowing unmotivated individuals to hold and keep upper management positions. They lose long time hardworking engineers and other employees due to corporate politics and management issues that could be dealt with through removal of inefficient employees. Needs an overhaul on communication between R&D, sustaining engineers, technicians, and field teams....

          Advice to Management

          Cut out the middle men on parts. Revamp many processes of communication between R&D, field engineers, and production. Treat employees as people not numbers and production will increase. Not through financial means but through listening to flaws in the current system. Hire a consulting firm to find and improve or eliminate inefficient employees, processes, and expendatures. But do not allow employees know...
