one of the best working place in India.

R&D Engineer (Current Employee)
Mānesar

I have been working at Agilent Technologies full-time for less than a year

ProsDue to its inclusive environment every one gets an equal opportunity, be it a senior team member or a fresher. The fellow employees are very helpful. So it takes off the added pressure of very competitive environment. The best thing is that everyone works collectively and nobody tries to pull you down which is very uncharacteristic of a private company

ConsIts not a downside but you are expected to put in a lot of efforts. sometimes working on holidays becomes a necessity.
