    Pros

    Diverse workforce of people, ability to grow to higher levels within the company, many managers who truly care about the development of individuals on their teams.

    Cons

    As with any large, global corporation, there can be internal politics that are frustrating, such as when trying to obtain the budget necessary for important projects. It can also sometimes be difficult to have the right people be allowed to participate on cross-functional projects because the best employees are always assigned to so many projects that they can't take on any more work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the needs of customers, both external customers and internal customers (employees). Never forget the age old saying that the most important assets of a company go home at the end of each day.

    Pros

    You have an amazing support team who really go the extra step for their salespeople.

    Cons

    Internal team can over-think decisions or be too conservative at times. Have currently changed model with more of a focus on inside sales which may be difficult for existing customers used to the original model and the model that is currently in place with PMC's competitors.

  8. Great resources and local management, feels somewhat removed from upper management

    Pros

    Lots of resources. They have given me all the hardware I have asked for that is relevant to my job (software engineer). Smart people. Good local management.

    Cons

    Your bonus is tied to corporate performance, not just your BU or product line. This means no matter how well you do, you may not get anything due to some other unit screwing up. On the plus side, management told us no bonuses, but then fought for us and corporate agreed to give us at least a fraction so it wasn't a total loss.

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk big picture all the time. That's useful sometimes and more so to investors, but we the grunts want to hear about specific things that affect us day to day. That will make us more eager to excel.

    Pros

    Support from the management to take risk, trust employees to take charge of the situation/crisis/issues etc. Competitive salary; Work-life balance; Excellent 401K matching - 50% up to 6% of base salary + 4% additional. a variety of choices for Healthcare insurance plans; employer sponsored life insurance, optional life insurance coverage at a nominal charge; Fitness gym available, fitness reimbursement;

    Cons

    No employee stock bonus; Salaries could have been a little bit better; Corporate involvement could slow things down; Too much corporate control over business supporting functions - such as IT, finance, procurement functions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to senior Royal Philips leadership - Please provide a guidance frameworks for the business groups on how to run and let the business groups take in-charge of their territory - How they manage their R&D funds, IT tools, supply chain/engineering support functions etc.; Consolidation of business systems to one-tool and one-process will jeopardize the businesses; low performers might step up a bit; however this could be a huge impact for high performers with a very lean operating model;
