Decent work environment, lots of politics

Technician (Former Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I worked at Varian Medical Systems

ProsMost of the employees are friendly, with time comes nice vacation packages and other benefits, bus/tram pass (if requested). If you have ambition you can stand out.

ConsThe internals of the company have become more political. A person used to be promoted based on merit, now it is about who you know.

Advice to Senior ManagementVarian Medical Systems is a great company, it is widely known in the industry. To stay in this position more of a focus needs to be placed deep in the heart of the organization with the workers.
