Interesting work, super-smart coworkers, positive work environment

R&D Scientist (Current Employee) Santa Rosa, CA

ProsWonderful 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementAgilent 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
