Disapproves of CEO

Pros

always fresh technology to learn with.

Cons

offshoring efforts didn't take into account the effect on the people that made the company what it is.

Advice to Management

appreciate the loyalty of the employees when you think about layoffs. People suffer, and you keep getting your bonuses.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Leading edge of technology. You're surrounded by highly Intelligent working people. A huge campus that could have held 4,000 people. I personally survived 14 layoffs.

    Cons

    Smile while overseas exploiting poverty and cloak outsourcing as training which the end result was giving American jobs away. Live off HP's reputations until it is time to normalize all aspects. HP was a leader. Agilent is a follower. Money, money, money kept us outside of the customer's head. Shouldn't you know what your customers wants? The CEO's legacy is more important than that the company stands for. Share holders govern the company's future. And seriously...what is wrong with "Made In USA"?

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managment from the competition!!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    work life balance friendly and knowledgeable coworkers mediocre health benefits plentiful resources for doing your work it provides a paycheck, sigh

    Cons

    benefits continue to erode including the stock purchase plan which is now essentially worthless employee demographics is heavily biased towards the long-timers the company seems to have no interest in developing new talent (nor rewarding that talent so that it stays around)

    Advice to Management

    this company needs to wake up and not be so beholden to the stock market. try to break the perpetual belt-tightening cycle and actually do something to support your employees or there may be significantly less of them once the job outlooks improve
