    I worked at Accuray full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great products that the employees are proud to be building.

    Cons

    Very top heavy with managers at too many levels. Way too many managers that don't really contribute to the company's bottom line or add value to the products. The stock value is non-existent. This is very defeating for any employee that's trying to contribute to the overall success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Over 7 years now since buying TomoTherapy; something needs to change at the upper levels to make the company profitable. Senior people are leaving because of the lack of confidence and trust in management. Managers need to better communicate with the employees doing the real work everyday and respect their efforts. People can't work efficiently when all aspects of the business are in some form of chaos. The people in...

    I worked at Accuray full-time for 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...

    Great people, collaborative environment Great products Employees are very connected to the mission of the company in fighting cancer. Good pay and benefits.

    Too many layoffs Frequent reorganizations and layoffs put a strain on morale. Low stock price does not reflect huge progress of the company. Minimal bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the organization.

    Pros

    Great product and great people. Although the product innovation is almost gone and now falling behind competition ...

    Cons

    Extremely bad management - especially the executive team. Layoffs happen every 6 months because mgmt can't plan properly and really doesn't understand the business or customers. The CEO is totally lost and always over promises and under delivers. Need to fire all of upper mgmt and the board of directors that believe the ridiculous operating plan every year and fail the investors and employees regularly. Lack of accountability...

    Advice to Management

    Either go to business school to learn how to run a business or fire yourself - because you have no idea how to run the business - when a company laysoff every 6 months, there are real issues at the top and lack of understanding of the business ...

    I worked at Accuray for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great products. Good vision for the company recently.

    Cons

    One particular manager has a Napoleon complex that is going to sour prospective employees on remaining in the manufacturing arena of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those managers that practice blatant favoritism. Look into the exceptions to the company rules that are granted to a select few employees in manufacturing.

    I worked at Accuray

    Pros

    CK is a great product that saves lives and is making a tangible difference. Incredibly smart people who are dedicated to their jobs and are fighting an uphill battle with the deck stacked against them.

    Cons

    Everything you need to know about the company can be found on the Yahoo Finance Message Board. At first, you think it's just one disgruntled employee or stockholder. Then, as you read, you come to realize there are so many people and so many comments about outlandish behavior that something is amiss. It all starts at the top, and it is a tragedy to see an extraordinary technological lead frittered away by poor leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new management or sell out to a company with deeper pockets. It's past reform time.
