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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Agilent has stood the test of time as a technology company that was started by Bill & Dave in the 1930's. And the reason for this longevity is the quality of the people. From the production line to the engineers to the management team, Agilent is special because of its incredibly sharp, innovative and team-oriented staff around the world.

    Cons

    Being a global multinational firm, many roles like mine require some pretty crazy hours in order to connect with peers in time zones around the globe.

    Advice to Management

    While pursuing growth in emerging markets, don't forget about the core geographies with its aging employee demographics. Be more aggressive with university recruiting.
