    Pros

    Everyone trying to do the right thing by working hard and achieve the main goal to cure cancer, and they are enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    There was some group that has their own 'clique' which hard to be part of. at a point I was felt a bit discriminated. Fortunately that person no longer with this company.

    I worked at Varian Medical Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large and leading in its field; Good compensation and benefits; You can hide as much as you want; You will like it if you like slow moving geeks;

    Cons

    No vision; Geeks run the place; Management focus on next quarter's results -- look at their compensation packages, and you know why....; Very old-fashioned and slow-moving; Extremely conservative; Not very diverse; Career advancement opportunities very limited; Lots of politics between departments as people try to collect brownie points

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get fresh blood into the place ! Wake up -- management practices from the 70's don't work anymore....
