I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Collaborative culture
Opportunities to learn, develop, and grow, especially for early-career professionals
Friendly, smart, hard-working people
Great work-life balance and flexibility

Cons

Limited advancement opportunities for mid-career professionals
Management and senior leaders entrenched in their positions and play "musical chairs" with no real advancement opportunities for younger talent
Limited leadership opportunities for women and minorities
Pay and benefits (e.g. stock compensation) below Silicon Valley standards
Constant cycle of workforce reductions, cost cuts, and budgets controls

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to retention of your top talent. To keep high performers, you have to reward and promote them. You do a great job hiring, developing and training employees, but then lose them because of the lack of career growth opportunities. With the aging employee population, developing next-generation leadership bench will be critical if Agilent wants to continue the growth momentum.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies

    Pros

    Great people. Many people have been there >15 years, and there is a ton of institutional knowledge.

    Cons

    IT budgets are so tight to where it is extremely difficult to do anything more than run day-to-day. The money is there, but they are terrified to invest.
