    Pros

    The day-to-day work environment is good. The people are good to work with and, in my case, resources are adequate.

    Cons

    The management is so risk averse that the company can't grow. Priority choices always seem a bit off. There has been a steady erosion of respect for the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair. You have cut up a great company into little bits and made it less than it could have been, all to please four month investors. Look again at the relationship of company to employee; there has not been any change in the company with respect to the employee that results in BETTER pay or benefits regardless of what the HR people or CEO say.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good corporate culture. Professional managers. Career growth opportunities. Individual contributors are some of the best and most talented people I have worked with.

    Cons

    Not very competitive salaries and benefits for the Bay Area.
    Not much thought about the next generation of Agilent employees

    Advice to Management

    If the aging workforce issue is not addressed with long term goals in mind Agilent will not be sustainable in 20 years.

    Pros

    Much of the old-timers retain the respect and empathy and collaborative culture of Bill and Dave's company

    Cons

    The 2000s were spent making decisions with only quarterly benefits, with no long view. Changing benefit plans when the CEO gave his word he won't .. newer folkspushed a more cut-throat culture, throwing family-friendliness out the window

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your roots.
