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

    Pros

    Great life/work balance, flexible hours. Beautiful Santa Rosa site. Mostly great people.
    Good place to hide for enginners who don't want to work too hard.
    Slow paced.

    Cons

    Regular layoffs to skeeze a bit more profit affecting only individual contributors.
    Huge hierarchy of management (8 levels!)
    Upper management always keep pressure so that salary increases remain minimal and employees are kept on their toes: either it's a bad year, or it's good but didn't meet the just upwardly revised expectations, or it's good for now but is expected to turn bad next year.
    Slow paced.

    Pros

    You will work with the best engineers and scientists in the world.

    There are still pockets of the HP Way in Agilent but those employees are aging out.

    Cons

    Expect to go through Workforce Management cycles (i.e. layoffs) every two years. Your favorite project will probably get cancelled, possible for political reasons.

    The American workforce is pretty old. Most new hires are overseas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the individual contributors.
