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

Pros

Agilent Technologies is a large company that offers a lot of benefits to its employees including stock options, great healthcare package, and bonuses.

Cons

A lot of processes at Agilent are not efficient and need to be improved but the existing infrastructure makes it difficult for change to be propagated. Also the fact that it's split into 2 divisions creates unique challenges from a reporting perspective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to get to know your employees.

    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.
