    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Varian Medical Systems as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary, pays well, good benefits.

    Cons

    Bad management. They hire a person with lower experience and expect them to work at a level of high experience. Example, they hire an entry-level college graduate to do mid-level work, which is unfair and impossible. Manager is abusive and discouraging, saying negative things all the time and isn't willing to help. Not enough training. They only train the basics of the software and expect you to know the advanced stuff on your own. They want you to learn 2 years worth of experience in 4 months and torture you for not having that knowledge when in fact they did not give you the time to reach that level. They hire contractors for a certain time period, like one-year contract or six-month contract, and they let go of you before the contract is over like in three months. They have no discipline and do not act morally. Totally old-school and would never recommend anyone to work in such an unhappy and stressful environment. Money isn't everything.

    Advice to Management

    Poor management and communication skills. Should be regulated and ensured that employees are being treated properly with respect.
