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

Pros

great work life balance. I love the people i work with and work for. The building is classy but a bit bare. Flexibility is the best part.

Cons

Agilent is a bit older with regards to their population, and there are very few opportunities to get to know others within the buildings.

    Pros

    Love the people I work with and what the companies does. Agilent also has that rare feeling that the company actually cares about its people.

    Cons

    IT is cash strapped and heavily outsourced, it is a battle to get resources if you are not driving a sexy technology like Telepresence or mobility. Focus is often too narrow and on cost instead of long-term gains and risk taking.

    They also believe in manager rotation, so the managers are not skilled in the technology they are managing. This is often a problem especially in complex areas like security, and it shifts a lot of power and responsibility onto the "architects" who are constantly retraining their managers every 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Agilent employees are a resource and their internal knowledge is not easily replaced need to find a way to raise up more internal local US resources that can provided the direction and leadership to the outsourced groups, HR needs to learn how to match salary to the roles they key players play.
