    I have been working at Agilent Technologies (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work life balance is great at Agilent as well as the extra curricular activities. There are plenty of open spaces and sporting clubs from volleyball to basketball, plus an onsite gym with aerobics classes. The company allows for great flexibility for their employees and are not strictly tied down to the common 9-5 type schedules. This allows everyone working here to maximize their time and actively engaged in the daily tasks either remotely or on-site.

    Cons

    Being in the heart of Silicon Valley, one would assume there are greater employee benefits such as subsidized food or better health benefits. Plus upgrade the servers for the main Agilent website and the on-site WIFI

    Pros

    Culture encourages respect among colleagues, fosters innovation, and motivates employees to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a proper work-life balance.

    Cons

    Agilent is in the early stages of restructuring in an attempt to correct misguided management of the past several years. Speed to opportunity is still an issue but is improving. A better sense of focus is emerging but a clear strategy that will differentiate us from the competition has not been communicated well enough. High hopes for the new senior leadership that this will occur soon.

    Advice to Management

    Collaboration has improved but the divisions are still too siloed. Management should reconsider incentives and tie cross-divisional activities to a clear strategy for a new and improved Agilent.
