Never single out a person due to you personel feelings. Listen more and just because someone does not have the "college" degree does not mean their worth can not make a difference.

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

    Pros

    Most of the team members are friendly people. Many long term employees

    Cons

    If you are a contractor, then the manager will make sure that you are not invited for group lunch/lunch out paid by the company or not invited for any company events. You will also be denied of getting better computer even if the computer is not working in good condition. Pay is lower than market

    Advice to Management

    Keep boasting your profit increase while keep outsourcing and making contractors as the second class workers

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

    Pros

    Up until I was laid off, it was the the best job of my 40 year career. The technology is great and they are doing very interesting things. Most of the rank and file engineers are very smart and great to work with.

    Cons

    The company was just split into the medical ("Life Sciences') and electronics ("Electronics Measurement Group"). The Life Sciences company will keep the Agilent name and who knows what the Electronics Company will be called. I was a master level level electronics engineer who's contributions were in almost all of the microwave and RF products. The "HP" way is so dead and gone.

    Advice to Management

    Way too much corporate BS. Only thing that you care about is the ROIC to line your own pockets. There are some very evil and incompetent mangers who don't have the skills to work in a high technology company.
