Good people, loyal client.

Marketing (Current Employee)
Fort Collins, CO

I have been working at Agilent Technologies as a contractor for more than 10 years

ProsStrong commitment to people and teams, genuine concern for work-life balance, hard workers who demand hard work in return -- but also show great appreciation and loyalty for performers who get the job done.

ConsOccasional tendency toward fire drills, some projects could use more planning, but overall, projects are planned as far in advance as possible, and roles and responsibilities are clearly defined.
