Pros

The culture is very relaxed and easy-going. Agilent offers great options to balance your work and home life and the people here have been nothing but great to work with.

Cons

Being a large company, it is hard sometimes to juggle resources that are spread out all over the world. The politics surrounding a large corporation like this can make life difficult at times but that would be true of almost any large organization in the biotech industry.

    Pros

    Pay was OK... not great. Big Company.. easy to get lost. Duties of a contractor are light since they lock you out of meetings. Very friendly person who apologized about how they officially treated me. I did get free lunches.. unofficially.

    Cons

    Pay was OK... not great. As a contractor, your duties are lighter than full time persons. They lock you out of meetings, company events, card key different, not really part of the team in Engineering. $$They rarely convert Contractors to Full time...$$$ Contract agencies take 1/2 of salary.

    Advice to Management

    Convert more contractors to full time and not treat them so poorly.
