    I worked at Agilent Technologies part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with best of the best on leading edge measurement technologies. Long history of continuing to push advancements in spite of size & structure. Culture in the Test & Measurement side of the business is very much the old "HP Way".

    Cons

    Very experienced workforce resulting in limited advancement opportunities. For the stability the pay is good but not at the leading edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to focus on a compelling vision and taking risks vs expecting everything to always work as planned
