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

Pros

This is an established company to work for. With much of the HP culture that was inherited, employees are trusted and held accountable. Work-life balance is highly respected.
Management is honest and friendly (as much as one can expect from management).
Job stress is usually little.

Cons

Lacks in diversity: In Santa Rosa it is predominantly white and male, especially in engineering roles. The population has been aging for a while (if you are under 50 you are considered young!). New hires are coming in at a slow pace. On the plus side, the aging population carries a vast amount of knowledge and experience.
promotion is slow.

Advice to Management

Get to know your individual contributors.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People working here are very knowledgeable and ready to help, very friendly and comfort working environment. The new employee training is very systematic and can cover almost all aspects. Very supportive for self-development.

    Cons

    Really don't see much that I don't like here. One thing is the average age of the employees is a little higher than other companies, especially small companies or start-ups, so if looking for a place to have lots of "fun" with your colleagues, probably this is not the right one.
