    I worked at Varian Medical Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large and leading in its field; Good compensation and benefits; You can hide as much as you want; You will like it if you like slow moving geeks;

    Cons

    No vision; Geeks run the place; Management focus on next quarter's results -- look at their compensation packages, and you know why....; Very old-fashioned and slow-moving; Extremely conservative; Not very diverse; Career advancement opportunities very limited; Lots of politics between departments as people try to collect brownie points

    Advice to Management

    Get fresh blood into the place ! Wake up -- management practices from the 70's don't work anymore....
