    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great people- brilliant, personable, team feeling Lots of interesting technology Innovative

    Cons

    It's publicly traded, so many management decisions seem short-sighted Always changing how reps are paid Once a year some "glitch" in the system prevents them from paying your commission on time. Some sort of accounting error that just seems to coincide with the end of a half or year... They do end up paying it out, eventually.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They take care of their employees. During Covid, they made a promise to not last anyone off due to the virus. They made a serious effort to maintain distancing and allow people to take time off of they needed it without having to use up FTO.

    Cons

    Our specific site is a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, so there's a lot of regulations. If you don't like a highly regulated environment, it's probably not a good fit. But, I know other Agilent sites are different, so this isn't a comment that can be generalized to other sites.

  7. "Disorganized Mess"

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Regular Paycheck - No one pays attention you whether you actually do any work. - You can leave the building for hours on end while you are suppose to be "supervising" and there is no accountability for your absence. - If you are related to another employee that works for the company, you can be hired with no real experience.

    Cons

    - In the Frederick, CO location, there is a tremendous lack of concern for safety. Safety concerns that are brought to management are ignored. Accidents are not discussed and no changes are made to prevent future problems. - There is an extreme reluctance from management to facilitate change. - Quality systems need to be revised to more current standards, however management will not entertain "new" ideas. - Promotions are done based on favoritism and "going with the flow". Those who present innovative ideas or suggest process improvements are blacklisted.
