Pros

Slow pace, you can relax a lot if you're a software engineer.
You can have great work & life balance.

Cons

So many people are older than you.
Do not be ambitious. It will not fit the culture.
If you stay there for too long time, you cannot move to any other good places.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There so many good talents wasted here.

    I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits meet industry average. New employees receive 3 weeks vacation. Some jobs allow for employees to work from home.

    Cons

    The financials are met by not investing in infrastructure. Facility personnel are strapped trying to maintain facilities with no funding. Some Agilent facilities lack strong leaders.

    I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Agilent has incredibly smart people, with high integrity. The company usually demands accountability and lets most employees with autonomy. Lots of ways to contribute and innovate.

    Cons

    Each department has it's own culture and practices are not always consistent. I've had 10 different senior managers since I started and each one had their own priorities for ruling their empire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand up for your strong employees and hold the weak employees accountable for their bad behavior. Sometimes bad behavior is overlooked in order to keep the peace.
