I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some very smart engineers, few good technologies

Cons

Badly managed outsourcing model has killed the company!

Advice to Management

Get rid of those high paying IT managers who only care to check their emails and don't bother to attend to issues.

    I worked at Agilent Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Thoroughly enjoyed the work. Very laid back environment and leads/supervisors were very supportive and knowledgeable. Would go back in a heartbeat!

    Cons

    I wish I could have stayed longer, but budget cuts required contracts to be cut back. As a large business, this is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on your core technologies; make sure there is a solid base in the central technologies of your trade before branching out and acquiring other businesses.
