I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent yet a bit late decision to spin off electronic T&M group
Great individuals and teams around the world do know how to deliver amazing results
Very few senior managers are excellent in mentoring new employees and adopting change

Cons

Some long-time and/or senior employees (especially from larger sites) have a well established network, influencing or trying to control key changes in major initiatives as they see fit - expect the unexpected

Advice to Management

Accelerate a true adoption of younger generation(s) in senior management
Continue staying focused on growth, innovation and superior operational results

    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules allow you to have a good work life balance. I had no problem spending time with my family, making doctors appoinments, kids recitals etc. They provide a great environment for innovation and thinking outside the box. They support you in these efforts and reward you with small trinkets and gift cards. You come up with a way to save them say 50k a year and they give you say a 25 dollar gift card(for example). It took me way too long to realize that I had to get another job so that I could reach my financial and lifestyle asperations. However, they did throw some great employee parties with good food, good music and alcohol on the company premises which made for some awesome times.

    Cons

    Poor pay and raise structure. No advancement for the average Joe. Political/favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic to new hires about the potential for career growth and salary increase opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Nice people to work around. Good environment. You have enough freedom and time to do your work.

    Cons

    Bad employee benefit and bad high level management. Company is going to divid by two and they are pround of it? They didn't realize that company is already small enough?

    Advice to Management

    Do you know what's the value of your employee? Don't lie to people or make the target/ things you can't achieve.
