    I worked at Keysight Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great corporate culture*
    Cares about their employees**
    If you're an engineer, it's the place to be***

    Cons

    *If you're actually employed with Keysight and not a contractor
    **Contractors not included
    ***If you're not, RUN

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring contractors if you're going to treat them like second-class employees. Don't make them have to pay to go to office parties. Don't exclude them from company events. All that does is build resentment and reduce loyalty. For a company full of incredibly intelligent people, that's a pretty dumb misstep.

    Pros

    Revenue outlook for the company is strong

    Cons

    Trying to grow revenue at same time we cut costs can lead to mission confusion

    Advice to Management

    Be clear as to why we are cutting benefits (RSUs, small bonsuses etc) when we are having record revenue and gross margin quarters.

    Stop micro managing engineers. Trust your team. While I was there I had 3 managers over the course of a year, need more stable leadership as well as leadership that trusts their engineering team.
