I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

Pros

Great people: very smart, capable and friendly. They are loathe to do layoffs, thought they did one in 2009 of about 5%

Cons

Terrible management at highest level. Regulatory compliance is not a priority, Everything is driven by Engineering and the priority is to ship product - whatever it takes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, especially those at the individual contributor level. You have not created a healthy regulatory compliance environment. You do not mentor and promote people.

    Lots of good people, but many are stuck in their ways and upper management doesn't have your best interest at heart.

    I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

    Pros

    Good People, interesting projects, freedom to do what you need to do, relaxing workload

    Cons

    Feels like upper management just wants you to be standard. Hard work is appreciated but not prized or valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be better communications across groups and departments. Its like the business side doesn't communicate with Engineering sometimes.

    No Carrier Growth. Lack of Recognition for Hard work/Dedication. Good for ppl who talk more rather than who really work
