Does it really work after selling or spinning off one Group after another?

    Good to see life in an established company with a mature product - Co-op/Intern perspective

    I worked at Agilent Technologies

    Pros

    It was great to work on a product that was useful, and used by a wide range of excellent companies. Getting involved with a wide variety of networking protocols is a great experience. Although the product is mature and changes are constrained by previous versions, testing was a little bit less so. In the time I was there (8 months) there were some significant changes made or planned to the testing process, some of which came from the Test Engineers as well as the managers. The coworkers are great, especially the team I worked on.

    Cons

    Working on a mature product meant that there was little room for creativity. The improvements and changes were constrained by the previous iterations. This applied to the testing as well, although less so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps create more avenues for bottom-up changes to the product and/or process.

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits and very flexible regarding working practises.

    Cons

    Completely broken ranking process. No growth opportunities. Continual draconian expense management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the spreadsheet management and apply some intelligence to the process.
