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

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 Management

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.

    Pros

    I felt that the management had a great sense of direction for where the company was headed. From day one I was made to feel like I was part of the team, and that my work would help the company as a whole. I got to engage with employees from all across the United States, and every one of them made me feel welcome and good about my work.

    Cons

    Limited amount of job opportunities non engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hear the opinions of the employees.


  2. good company, not-so-good management

    Pros

    Agilent Technologies is a large company that offers a lot of benefits to its employees including stock options, great healthcare package, and bonuses.

    Cons

    A lot of processes at Agilent are not efficient and need to be improved but the existing infrastructure makes it difficult for change to be propagated. Also the fact that it's split into 2 divisions creates unique challenges from a reporting perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to get to know your employees.
