Pros

The pay is fair and the amount of technology you are exposed to is sometimes overwhelming. There is always something you can learn more about.

Cons

Sometimes there are too many processes and concepts of technology that it can be hard to grasp a good understanding if you don't get enough exposure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not try to train every Field engineer on every product the company makes.

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment! My coworkers are very talented, dedicated, and nice to work with. Numerous people who have left for other companies (family reasons, higher pay, etc) have called back and remarked that they didn't realize how good they had it at Agilent. Work-life balance is superior to most companies, collegiality is high, and work is interesting.
    Lastly, if one shows ambition to expand one's horizons, it is rewarded in our group.

    Cons

    The only con is that some companies have higher salaries. Agilent's salaries aren't poor by any means, but if you are looking for absolute top dollar it will be found elsewhere (though usually at companies that will require you to sell your soul to them).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Agilent did well coming out of the last downturn by keeping our eyes on longer term growth projects - keep doing that... continue avoiding the temptation to optimize for the current quarter.
