It has become increasingly worse as management problems have overwhelmed the workplace environment.

I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

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

ConsTerrible 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 Senior ManagementListen 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
