    Agilent is a large company with the typical tradeoffs one finds in that situation

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary, bonus and reward system, plays by the rules as far as I know. Has an ethical culture at the worker level meaning that they treat full time professionals humanely (I can't vouch for contract workers). Lower level managers I have had have been competent and even likeable.

    Cons

    Gradually moving away from the benevolent model to become more like other corporations. Replacing older experienced and expensive older workers with cheap talent without an appreciation of the long term consequences. Focused on the stock analysts and the quarter, blah, blah. It is hard to be a real star at the contributor level. The company is just too big.

    Pros

    It's a job and you earn a paycheck

    Cons

    Horrible pay and the benefits are close to non existent because you pay so much out of pocket. No room for advancement. Rather hire people off the street instead of in house.

    Advice to Management

    Get better compensation for the workers. And treat them better all together. Allowing someone to work a holiday is not a treat. A bonus is :)

    Pros

    Hands off management, high business ethics, technical challenges, great colleagues

    Cons

    politics; company is currently re-inventing itself, so there are many changes.

    Advice to Management

    The recent change in management and the split with Keysight were poorly handled. The changes only fuel speculation regarding the next changes.

    Pros

    salary low to average, high work load, bonus can be great if you get both categories but your manager has to love your work

    Cons

    no time to form relationships with colleagues due to work load, moving all jobs to Malaysia that can be moved, all expectations are immediate
