Lots of good people, but many are stuck in their ways and upper management doesn't have your best interest at heart.

I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

Pros

Good People, interesting projects, freedom to do what you need to do, relaxing workload

Cons

Feels like upper management just wants you to be standard. Hard work is appreciated but not prized or valued.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be better communications across groups and departments. Its like the business side doesn't communicate with Engineering sometimes.

    I have been working at Varian Medical Systems

    Pros

    Agile methodology for development.
    Work is reviewed to make sure the quality of work is above standards.
    Well balanced personal life.

    Cons

    I wouldn't recommend this to freshers or just-out-of-college students as this is bit slow in execution and as a fresher we all are very enthusiasts to do lots of work and a variety of experiments. Once you have had a good 2-3 years experience elsewhere you can surely join Varian and you will feel better about the work you do and the pace is what you wanted after fast 2 years work.
    May be this is personal opinion but this is what i think.
