Pros

Place to develop good technologies. Nice work-life balance. Very nice and hard working coworkers. Good benefits.

Cons

Agilent is not giving pay raises. People are not confident about the upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to reward the employees more, instead of stock buyback etc. They are a lot of very talented employees who often feel they are not valued. Salary is generally lower that what people expect.

    Spark of Insigt just a dull glow. Bill and Dave would wonder where the real entrepreneurship went!

    Pros

    Still the place to be for test and measurment technology minded engineer.
    Great place to learn to be an engineer.
    Close working relationships if you are not remote.

    Cons

    No movement.
    Most divisions do not know how to work with remote employees
    Weak achievements touted as great success.
    Too many excuses for why they are not leadint the market in certain technology areas.
    Lower level managers not held accountable for being managers of employees. Most employee reviews are the "end of the year" surprises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at most of the management levels. It is very narrow in experience. Typically they have an HP (TMO) and/or Agilent backgound only. Easy to get frustrated if have career growth plans that bring a new light to divisions

    Pros

    A ton of great people, knowledge, and resources. Newer talent has a virtually unlimited access to senior resources. As with most big companies, there are multiple roles you can play.

    Cons

    Pay for new hires is now where near what other bay area companies are paying. Career advancement is limited for younger talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either hire experienced hires that you do not need to train or make an attempt to retain the younger talent you are grooming. Otherwise, you will spend 2-3 years training your new hires only to have them leave for more competitive pay - salary wise.
