I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

- Friendly, helpful colleagues.
 - Room for advancement (for the motivated)
 - International / Cross Culture workforce allows insight into other working environments around the globe.

Cons

Should you find yourself moving up the ranks to be on a global team, expect long workdays, starting early to meet with India /Europe, and late, to work with Asia / india. Pay increments for those in the US once they meet 'average' only come if you are a top 10% employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to focus on employee development.

    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They do some cool stuff, and the employees there are top-notch (for now). A great place to learn.

    Cons

    The company is so focused on reducing costs that the employees are starting to suffer. Persistent layoffs, changes in pay policies() that are never to the advantage of the employees. They want top-notch engineers on an average salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance the needs of the employees with the needs of the stockholders.

    Once a great place to work; now a shadow of its former self.

    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.
