"I've worked for Agilent since 2005 and seen a lot of changes as the organization has adjusted its market focus from life science research to pre-clinical and clinical marketplaces. Overall it's a good company to work for. At times it can honestly be frustrating in dealing with the entropy that needs to be overcome to do anything innovative. Be ready for a challenge if you're looking to be a change agent. Migration of R&D/Engineering/Mfg jobs off shore is a concern to be aware of."

Agilent Technologies Employee
in New York City, NY

"I joined this company in August '13 and have seen worst time since then. I joined after working with Genpact for around 5 years where I had great career. Agilent attracts the new job seekers by showing that they were listed in India's best place to work but the facts are different. I joined their Accounts Payable - Banking and Payments team where the process is too bad. Management has done nothing to streamline the process and employees are forced to work from 8 in morning till midnight and even on every day."
