    Pros

    *Of course there's lots to learn about developing LED's. Measuring light is very different from electrical test of semiconductors. The electrical testing feels like going back ten years in time, but there is a certain sophistication
    to the methods for measuring light.

    At Philips quality is respected over the volume of output. I liked that. Not a sweat shop but you have to work smart. Lot of technically smart people but some missing expertise.

     Personal time off is given easily for important issues.

    Cons

    The political atmosphere is a little restrictive.Everyone is competing for the same thesis and they try to make there's look good by criticizing others.

    All decisions are joint decisions which restricts autonomy and causes people to argue a lot. It's also very conservative so new ideas are often suppressed.

    Your life belongs to Philips and so expect to work long hours.

    They have a lot of layoffs. T

    oo many meetings and overhead.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to own certain areas of responsibility and promote autonomy. Projects will move faster.

    Dedicated Project managers would make sure there are no holes in the line of responsibility.

    Big changes in direction are causing a loss of efficiency.
