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

Pros

Good company that has a wide breadth of products including many cutting edge products. Have provided me opportunities to travel the world, learn new things, tranfer to different job functions.

Cons

Good company but not HP. Company sometimes makes some strange decisions. Been through few round of layoffs and seen some people be let go that just did not make sence.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop thinking your going to make test and measurement into a growth Business At least not in and of itseft. But it is a great business to be in that position Agilent to be able to develop and launch new technologies and other businesses. This is how HP grew. Take some risks.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance is great. This would be a good place to work if you have a family. Culture is also great - individual contributors really want to help each other.

    Cons

    Benefits erode just about each year. Pay is completely substandard for software engineers in the bay area. Wofkforce is aging, which means that while there's a lot of experience, there's not as much creativity. Retention of younger employees is pretty low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some new people! Transfer the knowledge from your aging workforce before it's too late. Focus less on your beloved ROIC, because that sole focus is making everything else suffer.
