    I had a very enjoyable, learning experience at Philips.

    Mechanical Design Engineer (Former Employee) Cleveland, OH

    ProsI have been seeking for quite some time now to work for a company that produces products that are helpful to the cause of medical science. Since the crux of my career has been confined to military defense components organizations in the medical arena have disregarded my attempts to switch to making medical devices/equipment.

    ConsI was taken back by the amount of information each employee, especially in the engineering departments each employee is expected to retain. I heard common comments that there is no way each person should be expected to remember everything to ensure each product is always compliant to all the various specifications..

    Advice to Senior ManagementI suggested that specialized sub-groups be organized that could over-see each engineering discipline: one group for mechanical, one for electrical, one materials, etc. the purpose of each group would be to be the information collecting point. Each group would be responsible for any spec changes, updates, refinements, etc that pertain to their specialized talent. Then when new drawings are created or revised these specialized sub-group would be responsible to review the documents to ensure that everything was in compliance. That way the designers could focus on making components/assemblies pertinent to the design and the sub-groups could just focus on making sure the FDA compliance.

    Great company to work for

    Contract Manager (Current Employee) Foster City, CA

    ProsVery family friendly and the work life balance is great. I don't get the impression that it is simply because of my manager either. It seems to be the culture.

    ConsVery disorganized company. No onboarding orientation. Can be hard to really feel a part of something instead of a cog in the wheel unless you are in sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to save money at the expense of culture.

    Engineer (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsPay - benefits are really good. Challenging work.
