Reviews - What employees say

2.17 Employees say

Support from management

management was not a team in other managers

Teamwork

everyone were like a small community, family

Freedom to work independently

especially nights

Internal Communication

sometimes communication got lost between the shifts

Gender Equality

it could have been better.

Attitude towards older colleagues

started hiring younger workers, less experience, for cheaper wages.

Career Development

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

Environmental Friendliness

no real recycling programs.

Work-Life Balance

it was at the beginning, but as we moved into a recession, the company no longer took family concerns

Company Image

was, but as conditions got worst, had to get away.

Job Security

job security went out the window when internal changes were made

Handicapped Accessibility

really were not set-up for handicap.

Workplace Safety

safety was pretty good, hardly any accidents.

Challenging Work

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.
