I worked at Agilent Technologies

Pros

Great people, cool technology, good work live balance. I worked in the central laboratories so my opinion may be biased high as this was a more academic environment.

Cons

Found some of the employees to be very competitive and found opportunties for advancement to be few and far between.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work and continue to invest in obtaining the brightest folks here in the united states and capitalize on your intellectual capital

    I worked at Agilent Technologies

    Pros

    Good people and talent there. Lots of resource both hardware and software readily available. Everybody work hard with long hours spent at work is a plus. I don't have to wait for people to show up tomorrow because they left the office at 4 pm.

    Cons

    It was a good company to work with. When it still has HP open door policy. But it turned into outsourcing company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shipping technical work to oversea. You need the top mind and talent here in the US to continue Agilent inovation

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies

    Pros

    Great benefits....great technology.....Nice legacy via HP. Pension plan. Vacation policy. Really nice setup for a balanced lifestyle. A standout in this area

    Cons

    Terrible communication chain......over-compensated senior management. Need to look into controlling salaries of executive staff......three mil for an exec vp of human resources?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to a focus on innovation and invention. Invest in future green technologies as well as refocus on electronic instrument innovation in Asian markets.
