It has been a very fruitful 5+ years working in Agilent, from both Company and my own perspective. I was able to use what I have gained from my previous compliance jobs and litigation work, in a smaller organization, which is more focused and to the point. The hardest part of the job was every company has different culture especially in "compliance" area, which added lots of challenges and FUN.
Nice office environment and facilities,
Overtime is not encouraged but people work hard there..
Generally friendly relationships between co-workers, good for graduates with pharma/chemistry/engineering background
I got a lot of knowledge there. I could learn so much from the conference every week and could get help from them.
The software version will upgrade in every 3 months. Also the instrument mode will upgrade. That will enlarge my know-how.
A very good company that all the engineers are very professional and diligent.
We also have "Little Scientist" program that engineers participate to facilitate pupils to design experiments and improve practical experiences.
High profile employees
To some extent, the company is controlled by Wall Street.
I'm an early bird. I come and deal emails from the US or UK with a cup of tea in a quiet office area. After workmates coming, we start meeting or talking or sharing insights. Then I focus on my works and collaborate with others.
