    Pros

    Varian, Inc. is currently being acquired by Agilent which should give long-time employees a boost that leads to new innovation.

    Cons

    Executive management is in their own world. They do not walk around and are just waiting until they receive their retention bonuses for the acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just walk around. Get to know your people. There are a lot of smart people that just need some recognition.

    Lack of understanding how long Agilent acquisition would take has really ruined a lot of value. Hope you enjoy the beach with your millions!
