- Varian, Inc.09.Dec 2016
Support from management
management was not a team in other managers
everyone were like a small community, family
Freedom to work independently
sometimes communication got lost between the shifts
it could have been better.
Attitude towards older colleagues
started hiring younger workers, less experience, for cheaper wages.
it was very good training.
Overall compensation for your work
it was good at the beggining, but as recession occured, it got worse, and even though conditions got better and recession got less. conditions got bad for employees.
Office / Work Environment
it was climate control and very clean working conditions
no real recycling programs.
it was at the beginning, but as we moved into a recession, the company no longer took family concerns
was, but as conditions got worst, had to get away.
job security went out the window when internal changes were made
really were not set-up for handicap.
safety was pretty good, hardly any accidents.
very proud of our work, but engineers should have proved out products before flooding the market
Inclusive / Diverse
diversity was always pretty good.
Suggestions for improvement
- You have to remember, that workers are your best asset. If things get so bad, that morale is at a all time low, it is time to make changes to help the employee, if you just tell the employees to have a better morale, it will only make things worse. These people make your product and meet your commitments, so the company makes money, their morale is important to the whole process, they are more than numbers.
What I like about the company
it was a good place to work for before we had a recession
What I dislike about the company
As Varian pulled out of the recession, it pulled away from its workers, and were more concerned about making money, and less family orientated. It lost its major strength, family and teamwork.
