    Pros

    Advancement opportunities and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Changes made that should not have been made the way they were done.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your long term employees what they think. And instead of laying them off you should have given them new positions.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, Your manager really dictates the experience you have, it's a big place so there are many jobs and great opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Lots of constant change, always seems to be a new initiative, culture of the company is quite Dutch

    Advice to Management

    Transforming the company for better profitability is the proper path and you have the right idea... this company needs to act differently to leapfrog competitors

    Pros

    Philips has great people on the front line. Products are top shelf, support is awesome and benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    As soon as you go above the frontline people management lives in a cloud. Goals are not realistic, quotas increased 20-25% in a flat market with two new ultrasound products one that has not released yet, one that released over a year ago and still is not right. If you are going to look at one of the positions in ultrasound the New Jersey Territory is a dog Baltimore is a winner. I know the person who just had it, he lasted the longest and was let go for poor performance after doing a fantastic job. It was a territory issue not a rep issue. Unless they have changed the territory be aware!

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get in touch with the field and stop living n a cloud. Yes most representatives have been there more than 10 years. Look at your open territories and figure out if they are viable or if they need to be adjusted. Imaging overall is a train wreck.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. I had a great team of colleagues and our customer base was exceptional.

    Cons

    We were constantly faced with challenges related to the company being just WAY too big...changes moved at "glacial speed" and we were often beaten by competitors with better/faster product development etc. Frustrating!

    Advice to Management

    Allow the field sales folks to voice an opinion (typically very relevant since they are on the front lines!) about products etc. And try to expedite positive changes!

    Pros

    They are flexible and stable with plenty of interesting projects. The culture is pretty laid back. People are overall friendly and good to work with each day.

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement especially merit based. You need to gain experience to be promoted which takes years. Not a good place to be if you're a young professional.

    Pros

    Vacation and time off due to seniority was great. However personal or career growth sometimes stunted when business needs were changed by market demands or management.

    Cons

    Change is a constant factor. Never enough time to understand and implement changes especially when wearing multiple hats(responsiblities). Employee input was disrespected leading to lower morale. Previous company culture compared to being "a family" instead of a corporation
