I worked at Agilent Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

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 a year

    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.
