Shuffle the senior management deck and provide a greater career path opportunity for high performing managers to develop skills and learn new functional areas.

    Pros

    Agilent employees are very smart and very nice and Agilent provides the best work/life "HARMONY". Agilent does a great job of making the work environment very comfortable and enjoyable with little unnecessary stress. At Agilent, it's much more important to do a great job than to deal with organizational beaurocracy.

    Cons

    The company encourages latteral moves more than vertical advancement. This is great if you want to learn a lot of new things and can focus on doing good work in the job you're currently in, but it could be frustrating if you expect to advance rapidly to a particular senior level position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! You're awesome!

    Pros

    Agilent has pretty good work/life balance. Flexible working time is also good. Generally, people working in the same group is nice and very helpful. Generous bonus plan every six months is appreciated. Company-wide involvement in the community work is also good. Site-wide picnic and group-wide lunch is also fun. Respect to employees can be seen at all level of management.

    Cons

    Decision from management can sometimes be slow. Now they are improving this issue. Career advancement within a group is hard to see. Advancement to architecture level will take a long time as in most big company, I guess. They don't let employees automatically transfer to another group.

    Advice to Management

    Career path should be specified.
