    Great people and great work environment.

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Cupertino, CA

    ProsThough the company no longer exists, they did treat their employees well and it was a very nice place to work.

    ConsThough the pressure was actually pretty low at this company I still found myself working long hours. That may have been more a personal choice, but it did feel necessary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInteract with the engineers more often.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Struggling organization with limited direction

    ProsGreat people who want to see a successful company.
    Excellent test platform for SOC

    When economy is doing well this business is making good money

    Need to find success in some other product than SOC.

    Very possative. Well manage company with a good product and lots of opportunity for technical contributions by engineers

    Senior Application Engineer (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA

    ProsAlways on the cutting edge of test technology. The company is run by people who know the industry and are genuienly interested in providing inovative solutions to the test industry.

    ConsWorking with Germany is difficult. Sometimes these are cultural (We germans are always right!). Sometimes it is because they are so busy with so many products that they do not have time to devote to remote feild requirements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGermany is not the center of the Universe. There are other places in the world besides Germany. Germans can act too provicially.

    Verigy is in a death spiral placing little to no emphasis on their customer base, employees, or investment in R&D.

    Product Support Engineer (Former Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsI joined Agilent in 2000 just after the HP spun off the test business to Agilent. Agilent was a Great company to work for with opportunities for advancement and recognition for once hard work. However in 2006 when Agilent spun off the Semiconductor Test business to Verigy the company’s business dynamics changed dramatically. Customer and employee focus was gone as well as investing in tomorrow.

    ConsVerigy is a small company with no real focus on investing in its future or employees. They have a very limited focus on their major customers with little to no focus on satisfying smaller customer base.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much focus on the short term results with no focus on long term growth objectives.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They tried to be a HP spin out, gave it a good shot and will merger

    Materials Manager (Current Employee) Cupertino, CA

    ProsThe company was a great concept in the beginning, they did a valiant job to stand alone, increase their portfolio, and markets. They are only a one trick pony and will merger with another company.

    ConsFinancial performance is poor, bad product choices, politics and poor communication from senior managers. The morale is very low and folks are leaving in droves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the poor performing senior managers that got the company in the bad shape it is in. Keep the innovative core and merge to become healthy again.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people, but a completely externally focused management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cupertino, CA

    ProsLeading edge technology
    Very smart, very senior people
    Reasonable, though not great, compensation package
    Support for creative ideas
    Great customers

    ConsUpper management is completely focused on the investment community. (This may be changing as Jorge takes charge)
    Lack of communication from the executive team, even more, a lack of understanding of the employee situation
    The above two result in a lack of trust between the employees and the management
