I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

Pros

Great people: very smart, capable and friendly. They are loathe to do layoffs, thought they did one in 2009 of about 5%

Cons

Terrible management at highest level. Regulatory compliance is not a priority, Everything is driven by Engineering and the priority is to ship product - whatever it takes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, especially those at the individual contributor level. You have not created a healthy regulatory compliance environment. You do not mentor and promote people.

    I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

    Pros

    Varian is supportive of its employees spending time to find the root cause of problems. There is a variety of work so one will always find something interesting to do.

    Cons

    Varian spreads its employees over many tasks at once which makes it difficult to make consistent progress. Varian is not a high growth company.

    Pros

    Pay is decent. I work with a good core group of guys.

    Cons

    Senior Management does not know what my job entails. Edicts are pushed down before really checking to see what the affect would be on the field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk a mile in the shoes of those you manage.
