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 Management

Get to know the individual contributors.

    Pros

    Good work environment when I worked there, by that I mean the physical environment.

    Cons

    Many lay-offs and shrinkage in the legal department and elsewhere in the company; inflexible access to executives, almost a sanctuary environment, needed general counsel, hard to find or talk to.

    Advice to Management

    not sure where you are now; it was a great place but changed so much

    Pros

    ability to work from home, fair pay

    Cons

    Upper management is too far removed from the actual day to day business to make good decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your subject matter experts! Driving change for change sake doesn't mean you are improving anything.
