    I worked at Agilent Technologies as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed the work. Very laid back environment and leads/supervisors were very supportive and knowledgeable. Would go back in a heartbeat!

    Cons

    I wish I could have stayed longer, but budget cuts required contracts to be cut back. As a large business, this is to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on your core technologies; make sure there is a solid base in the central technologies of your trade before branching out and acquiring other businesses.

    Used to be a great culture but has turned into a bully culture.

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

    Pros

    Lots of smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Work-life balance issues really depend on how your immediate manager or their manager views the topic, for example, can you work from home or are you expected to be in the office. You can be held responsible to be in the office during the day but on calls early in the morning and late at night, again, depends on the work group. Pay is supposed to be among the best, but check it out because the pay is inclusive of a bonus that only is paid out if the company is doing well. You could find a better salary elsewhere. If you are hired in at a high wage, it may be years before you get an increase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread the wealth to the folks who are doing the work. The pay system gives little reward to the folks who are supporting the few who are deemed exceptional in a statistically biased measure.
