I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Agilent has incredibly smart people, with high integrity. The company usually demands accountability and lets most employees with autonomy. Lots of ways to contribute and innovate.

Cons

Each department has it's own culture and practices are not always consistent. I've had 10 different senior managers since I started and each one had their own priorities for ruling their empire.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stand up for your strong employees and hold the weak employees accountable for their bad behavior. Sometimes bad behavior is overlooked in order to keep the peace.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Hands on testing and research, engaging work, highly skilled employees, good work culture, flexible work schedules, decent benefits, and bonuses twice per year (if the company does well enough).

    Cons

    Some project schedules can be very demanding and difficult to meet. Working cross-culturally with manufacturers and employees abroad has its difficulties.
