I worked at Agilent Technologies as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Some of the smartest people that I have ever met.
Dedication beyond what I would expect.
Good communication from management to employees.
Vast intellectually challenging opportunities
High flexibility in deciding works schedule.

Cons

Up and down nature of the test and measurement industry.
Lack of opportunities for personal growth (they outsource their HR)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back human resources in house. I probably am not alone in hating outsourced HR.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Agilent's culture and values are constantly positive and always striving to move the company forward. They have a very strong marketing/finance department and the company as a whole constantly pushes for cutting edge technology.

    The work/life balance as an engineer is perfect. Work hours are fairly flexible as long as your work is completed, and the deadlines are set reasonably. If travel is necessary it is covered with normal fashion, but travel isn't required very often.

    During the summer there are frequent and fun internship events at the Santa Clara site.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the career opportunities for this company did not line up with my desires after graduation. The company doesn't seem to be growing at an extremely high rate, other than some hiring in Santa Rosa. Interns don't accrue time off.
