I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

As an engineer, Agilent allows you to work on some of the most advanced development projects in the world. The focus on product quality is of primary importance to all levels of management.

The retirement and 401(k) programs are generous.

Cons

The Individual Performance Bonus program is a good concept but poorly applied. If you don’t work in the right group on the right projects, you will not receive a bonus no matter how innovative or proactive you are.

Advice to Management

The IPB program is 100% opaque and shows a lot of favoritism. As currently applied, it is counterproductive and generating a lot of dissatisfaction in the engineering community. I suggest you create a reporting system similar to the annual management review reports and flatten the bonus structure.

    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, and some amazing co-workers

    Cons

    They preach respect, but senior leadership fails to respect their employees. There are some significant leadership issues on Chemical Analysis side of the company and Sr. level managers seem to be held to a lesser standard than individual contributors, and somehow get away with much more than should be acceptable in a professional environment
