I worked at Varian Medical Systems full-time

Pros

Varian designs and manufacturers products that actually do save lives. It provides an excellent environment for scientists and engineers work on state-of-the-art research and development. It also has the advantage of selling products (hardware and software) in an reasonably stable industrial segment.

Cons

R&D is distributed all over the world, which makes difficult to develop products efficiently. As in all public corporations, too much attention is paid to quarterly results vis a vis long-term investments and growth.

Advice to Management

It is possible to manage the company responsibly but at the same time to be a little bolder and riskier in increasing the rate of R&D investment as a percentage of sales, while at the same time carefully assessing the R&D productivity.
