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

Pros

ability to work from home, fair pay

Cons

Upper management is too far removed from the actual day to day business to make good decisions.

Advice to Management

Listen to your subject matter experts! Driving change for change sake doesn't mean you are improving anything.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No predetermined work hours. Can work any shift. Job stability.

    Cons

    Low salaries far below market average at some locations and tiny raises if any. Lack of consistency in project planning and follow through.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of disgruntled employees that would change jobs if the market improves. 5 years without even a cost of living increase.

    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.
