    I worked at Accuray

    Pros

    Having to chance to work with brilliant and creative people working together to cure cancer was life changing.

    Cons

    Once Accuray acquired TomoTherapy the collaborative culture at TomoTherapy was completely wiped out. Accuray is a very top-heavy company which seemed to have little appreciation for the work of the talented and dedicated people that designed and built the TomoTherapy machine.

    Advice to Management

    Have the Madison site be your main headquarters and reduce the headcount in Sunnyvale.

    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.

    Sometimes have to work late and on some weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what FSEs have to say.
