    A great place to work

    Oct 25, 2022 - Senior Project Manager in Santa Clara, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company treats employees like they deserve to be treated. Told during the pandemic that aside from VPs and up taking a 25% pay cut, no one else would face a layoff or pay cut. The company-wide bonuses are great. People have flexibility to remain WFH or hybrid after pandemic.

    Cons

    Benefits are so-so. Things move slowly. This is not a tech company and it shows.

    It's like working for a virtual company!

    Sep 15, 2022 - Field Service Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Nothing I can think of.

    Cons

    Healthcare plan is atrocious. Company is so cheap that provide a paltry $60 per day towards meals while traveling. Company contributes zero $$$ towards their employees HSA accounts to assist with medical bills. As an FSE you feel like a number, a warm body that gets tossed around by the schedulers who themselves have no clue what they are doing. Management only cares about metrics and treats the engineers like pawns. Horrible management structure and way too many hands in the pot. FSE's are expendable and Agilent could care less. They'll go out and hire someone straight out of college with zero experience. Managers only care about themselves and are focused on building their own careers. It's really like working for a virtual company where you never really get to know anyone, feel undervalued, nothing is explained and everything is outsourced to India.

    Pros

    Awesome products, people, and customers.

    Cons

    Forgotten the old school ways of HP sometimes, and that’s part of what made the company so special. Never forget your roots!

    Pros

    Resources you would expect at such a large company, i.e., equipment, travel, professional memberships, etc. Very flexible work from home options. Always opportunities to join other teams to develop different skills.

    Cons

    Very corporate environment, politics often get in the way of getting real work done. Too many mid level managers.

    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Has great product offerings, is well-established. Management is good, but varies from team to team.

    Cons

    Cuts corners and seems to burden employees before share-holders. Lofty quota goals and a compensation plan that doesn't reward you unless you're performing at 100% and beyond. Always promoting "Progressive" politics, but doesn't really look after the little guy... but what do you expect from one of the largest publicly traded US Life-Science technology companies? Benefits are so-so.

Diversity and Inclusion
We’re honored to announce our new partnership with Delaware State University (DSU), a leading historically Black university, to increase the share of underrepresented students entering STEM fields. Agilent will donate $1 million in addition to new lab instrumentation to help DSU expand educational opportunities and advance research in applied chemistry, biological sciences, food science, molecular and cellular neuroscience, and related disciplines. Agilent’s support will also contribute to building research capacity of a consortium of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the mid-Atlantic region led by Delaware State. To further support the partnership, Agilent is double-matching employee donations to HBCUs through the end of the year. The investment in HBCUs is part of Agilent’s broader philanthropic work, which focuses on increasing the pipeline of early-career professionals entering the life-sciences sector and addressing climate change and other environmental issues. It also advances the goals of Agilent’s diversity and inclusion program. #JoinAgilent
