    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Location of the Barcelona offices meaning that there are excellent views of the city. Short term position meaning you don't have to put up with the flaws for too long.

    Cons

    Do not follow labour law. Poor atmosphere at work caused by manager. Deceitful practices. Lack of accountability for managers, especially those in charge of Europe HR. Only opportunities to get ahead if you are french. High staff turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people. Deal with bad managers that cause a bad image of the company by lying to try and get around labour law despite ample evidence showing dishonesty on the managers part. Proper consequences for managers that lie to their team and destroy team morale. Get rid of the revolving door policy.
