Agilent as a company is very good

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time

Prostotally depends on the department and manger under you are working

Cons(Agilent - India) there is no involvement of HR department, some of managers are ruling on their team and pressuring them to do whatever they want or leave the organisation. In some department there are no work life balance at all, other facilities like entitled / festival leaves cant take, working hours are more than as usual with no overtime. Manager aware their team breaking SOBC rules but still supporting and promoting some of people who they like most. Mainly some of the managers are spoiling the company IMAGE.

Advice to Senior Managementbe fair with the empoyee, listen employee's voice and act on that. whatever feedback taken from employee should not disclose with their respective immediate or next manager. Should take feedback from employees for their manager in every alternative month. HR should involve during exit of any employee which is missing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a company for people who want to grow fast in their career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Agilent Technologies

ProsGood company, work life balance.

ConsGrowth is really slow, everything depends on manager's descretion, lack of flexibilty/work from home in various processes. Distance is a horror....atleast 4-5 hours of journey to & fro from Delhi.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more flexibility to employees keeping in mind the travel time and it should apply to the company as a whole.
