Proud company with amazing employees held back by management infighting & lack of investment in operational excellence.

Pros

Rich heritage. Employees are greatest asset who go to incredible lengths, working countless hours with very little reward or recognition. Engineering talent is outstanding and folks in trenches are highly creative.

Cons

Need to focus on the customer with greater intensity, Circular door of management with the same leaders simply changing seats which causes repeat mistakes and entrenched beliefs. IT investment is constrained for internal operations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take more risk and act with company values instead of pretending to. Need to take more leaps and make greater investments in Marketing setting achievable goals and tolerating less in-fighting and management of personalities.

    Pros

    Benefits, profits sharing, flexible hours

    Cons

    Health benefits getting worse every year.. might be better to get ACA.
    Profit sharing based on ROIC, if there is an acquisiion it is severely hurt. Has been the case for the last two years.
    Flexible hours depend on the job and manager.

    Raises not given often "due to the poor economy". When they do its very small.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To upper management: share the wealth how is it ok for you to make 10x+ more than the average worker who can barely get by in a twobincome household. Agilent is not alone its a culture of corporate greed.
    Also stop outsourcing Android sending jobs overseas. It might help profits but how much is enough? Its companies like you who are contrihutjng to the horrible economy.
    STOP decreasing benefits, making us pay more for less. With higher cost of everything and hardly any raises the last the ten years or so its as if we are making less.
    They probably know this but again.. every company is doing it is its ok
