Pros

Making "measurement tools" and instruments may sound boring, but actually Agilent is a scientifically challenging and fascinating place to work. In my experience, many people (including the CEO) do practice the old "HP Way." They show respect for employees, allow significant independence and flexible schedules (I'm home by 5 every day), and compensation is generous. And unlike many other tech companies, Agilent actually demonstrates corporate citizenship by donating to many charities, sponsoring science education programs, and reducing environmental impact by installing solar and recycling. And all of these benefits (to employees, customers, and communities) are done while making a stable profit. I think Hewlett and Packard would be proud.

Cons

It can be difficult to understand some of what Agilent makes or who the customers are, and it's not that "sexy." Most people have not heard of Agilent.

    It was fine as long as you could help out and didn't ask for career growth

    Pros

    Great people
    Benefits seems fair and decent
    work was challenging in order to meet deadlines.

    Cons

    The location I was at did not support career growth nor did they promote it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why not look to hire and grow talent from within instead of always getting new hires to fill positions. Some of your current employees have great ideas of how to run things for the future of the business.
