Great, bleeding edge company technically, but poor management at all levels.

I have been working at Varian Medical Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great place to learn skills
Friendly people
Technical leaders

Cons

Poor management, both in terms of strategic judgements and caring for staff
Stressful at times. Timescales set top down by management with no buy in from those who implement the work. Obsessed with keeping low headcount in spite of great finances and a mass of work to do. Compensation not as good as it used to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more staff. Don't always drive timescales topdown. Listen to the experts who implement them! Increase salaries. Varian used to be market leaders in salary, now below average.
