    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Agilent Technologies

    Pros

    Decent salaries, Good people from the old Hewlett-Packard legacy. Great products and great customer focus.

    Cons

    Very strict top management, which manages ROIC agressively with salary, benefit and headcount reductions even if company returns are very high above average even in difficult market situations. Strongly leverages the old HP culture and values in talks, but they do not reflect the true values of the company anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend next years building the environment of trust, secure employment and truely gratifying rewards reflecting the success of the company, not only for shareholders and top management like today, but the people in the company as well. Agilent has proven to do very well with current practices for over 10 years, but to become a great company, they have to change.

    Genomics Division Review

    Former Employee - Genomics Marketing
    Former Employee - Genomics Marketing

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

    Pros

    The biggest pro for working at Agilent is the quality of most of the people that work there. There are some dedicated people working in R&D, Tech Services, Sales, and even Marketing. The benefits are nice and compensation is pretty good. There are also opportunities to evolve your position through hard work and making sure the right people notice.

    Cons

    Like most other tech companies, one of the biggest cons is being unofficially on call nights and weekends. I worked on the business side of things and management was going through transition, so it felt like you had to make sure to check email before going to bed and before going into the office. It really wasn't uncommon to get a response from the GM at 10:30pm or to get an all division email sent at 4:00am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management could use a closer relationship to their independent contributors (those who don't manage others) and first line managers. A lot of good, knowledgeable people left because direction changed and management did not communicate the change or the new priorities effectively down the chain.
