    Pros

    The Culture - people are treated with respect. Management by objective. You are empowered to make decisions.

    Cons

    Not much upward movement. Low attrition rate at the higher levels. Also, could use a little more company-funded fun.

    Pros

    Work with awesome engineers and chemists - who need Wikipedia when you have people who know what they are talking about and are happy to help you understand. You have a lot of flexibility in solving problems, and if you see someone working on a problem that interests you then "welcome to the team". Management is aware of the 'graying' of the employees and continues to promote college hires. Agilent is one of the dwindling number of employers that still offers a retirement plan in addition to the 401K.

    Cons

    You are responsible for your own development plan, not your manager. Can be good or bad - good if you like challenges and have initiative, bad if you want someone to tell you what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bill and Dave practiced "management by walking around" to get first-hand knowledge on what was going on. Agilent management does great at that for the first couple levels of management, but higher levels need to get out more.

    Pros

    Excellent organization with a great technical value added product lines for a key growth market. Good market position and technologies for an ever expanding need.

    Cons

    Too much work being shipped to Asia for all the wrong reasons. Mgmt should focus on how to become more competitive in the US.

    Pros

    You are surrounded by people doing amazing technology
    Most everyone has a good attitude
    The pressure to get things done is about right: not crazy high, but enough to keep the blood flowing

    Cons

    Working with people on 4 different continents can be trying. It's certainly a big organization. It's really the price you pay for such a rich technical environment.
