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 Management

There so many good talents wasted here.

    Pros

    Great people & great work environment!
    Stimulating and challenging projects.
    Good work-life balance

    Cons

    I'm not sure I see upward mobility here (lots of mid level managers and they are all young).
    Also, it is difficult to become a top performer unless you are working on the hottest, high impact projects; other projects receive little attention.

    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 Management

    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.
