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

    Pros

    - Great products that help people fight cancer
    - There are still some people in the company that truly care about the products

    Cons

    - The Sunnyvale HQ is on its last legs. Face it, they're consolidating two offices into one and sending C-level positions to Morges.
    - There is no "Global Marketing Manager" in Sunnyvale. Take that into account when you read the reviews.
    - The company keeps getting rid of and losing top talent. It's hard to believe that the company truly wants to succeed. As long as the current CEO runs the company, Accuray has no chance.
    - Obvious hacks send people to write obviously fake reviews

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company.

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

    Pros

    Pretty easy going pace, lay back environment, nice friendly people that cares about making a difference to people's lives with cancer. Great technology and lots of smart people working there.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from the management, hostile firing of people and entire departments for the past 10 years, IT infrastructure is outdated with application team running legacy software for business apps.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better like they matter, encourage them to learn, grow, promote, and show some appreciation. Don't fire people and say it was a business decision for mismanaging your own budget and planning. show some transparency about the company in terms its health and direction.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Really like my co-workers and company ambiance, it's a small family and not the big company that makes you feel like you don't exist. The Tech Support job is a bit challenging and demanding but interesting and it makes you grow fast, job-wise and life-wise.

    Cons

    Can be stressful sometimes. As a young company, some processes are still in construction, but that's part of the things that makes the job challenging.

    Pros

    - Good place to work with energetic, enthusiastic employees that are passionate about the work they do.
    - Mature product set with unique, differentiated technology
    - Management team that is identifying gaps and bringing in new resources to address the needs

    Cons

    - Smaller organization among much larger size competition
    - Resource limitations due to smaller size

    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.

    Pros

    Best and differentiated products, making a difference in saving cancer patients' lives. If you have a family member or friend with cancer, you will appreciate the impact this company is making.

    Cons

    Too much turnover and reorg every year.

    Some of the best leaders and passionate workers were driven out. Deteriorated the culture of the company and teams, which is often overlooked in businesses but vital for small companies battling Goliaths

    Advice to Management

    Keep your best coaches and players
