    Pros

    There are a lot of fun activities you can be involved in as an employee including pick up sports, volunteer opportunities and company events such as Field Day and the Holiday Party at our site. For the most part my coworkers are great people who are helpful and interesting, making it a good environment for collaboration.

    Cons

    There are a number of internal processes a that are unnecessarily complicated and some of our business tools are clunky or outdated.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues, many opportunities to learn.
    A company with a global scale, that still feels like a family. They value your contribution and if you do well, you always have the chance to grow. Always.
    I have a young child and I still manage to do well at work, as flexibility is not only preached.
    Personally, I had a great experience so far.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little too formal and conservative.

    Advice to Management

    I must say I had wonderful managers, so far and had the chance to learn from them!
