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

Pros

Great work/life balance, lots of interesting projects, good people all around

Cons

Cafeteria sucks, pay is ok but not great, layoffs and hiring freeze as soon as signs of market weakening rise on the horizon, easily loses good people

Advice to Management

Keep performers happy

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

    Pros

    Agilent is a well known company with strong assets. The offer stock programs, and have full health benefits for full time employees. In the call center, there is the ability to have a stable job without much education.

    Cons

    Agilent dropped all educational benefits in 2010. In addition, Agilent plays way too much on the stock market valuations, as opposed to sound business practices. As an example, there is/was a couple that worked in the call center, and both of them have been laid off 3 times, only to be re-hired within the next year. The money they have made on their termination packages has bought them a second home.

    Advice to Management

    While this market is one for treating people like commodities, that shouldn't be made obvious by management. You had a senior manager come right out and tell everybody "we had over 100 applicants for 3 jobs" in reference to why they didn't take better care of their employees.
