    Pros

    Let's start off by saying I love this employer. The pay is well above industry average, healthcare and bonuses are significantly better than the rest of the industry, the training programs for new employees are excellent and well thought out and quite extensive. The vast majority of people working here are smart, hard working people who want to succeed and they want to help others succeed as well. Numerous advancement opportunities and lateral transfer opportunities Great corporate culture and no layoffs. I thoroughly enjoy working here.

    Cons

    The only con is that if you think you will only work 40 hours in a week this job isn't for you. Weekly average is more like 50 hours due to the complexity of the equipment you work on and time it takes to perform maintenance and repairs on such a complex machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what has made Varian successful, treat your employees well, train them well and allow them to treat the customers well and you will continue to succeed.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
