I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

Pros

If you enjoy cruising through your days at work, you can pull it off with the right manager. That's a plus right?

Cons

To move up the corporate ladder you need to be a loud mouth, dominating all others in the room. It doesn't matter if everything you're saying is garbage, as long as you say it with conviction, you're all good. This is what annoys me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to some of your employees. Ask them for their opinion. You might find they have great ideas for improvement, especially if they are more educated than you.

    Not so great management, good infrastructure but a lot of disparity in salary across the company.

    I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

    Pros

    You get lot of time for personal life
    Would rate 4/10 in terms of social life (parties,events, etc.)
    Great salary structure (not salary!)
    Complete internet access to all messengers / sites (FB,Twitter etc.)

    Cons

    People who have no experience in .Net are leading the development teams in .Net
    No processes in place for appraisals and salary increments, its always a last minute thing!
    Overall the technical competency and management capabilities of leads and managers in pune office, is very poor.
    Technically you can not grow in this company, however you get full internet access so you can learn on your own.
    Company is a product company, but the pune management thinks and works like "services" company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to change the mindset of "services" company and think like a product company.
    The focus should be on quality and not on how much time you stay after office hours !

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Varian Medical Systems as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They have a good work atmosphere.

    Cons

    It is a little bureaucratic and things move slowly. The FDA and other regulatory requirements is the cause for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve decision making.
