    I have been working at Philips Lighting full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits are still good.

    Cons

    Most are underpaid as compared to our competition. Philips is now using changes in the retirement plan to legally remove older employees. Morale is at an all-time low due to the actions of executive management team. There is virtually no appreciation or value placed on rank and file employees, it's a waste of time to try and be innovative or creative. Current strategy of "customer focus" is anything but and an open joke amongst employees. There is virtually no way to advance within the company unless you are one of the chosen few, usually ass-kissing suck ups to management. Production and achievement is most often rewarded with more work being required of you. Management has very little respect for work-life balance, some of the mid-level manager get it but upper management could care less about employee well being. Honestly, I could go on and on - this is not a place I would recommend working unless you have no other viable options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management would never take any advice from a rank and file employee on how to improve the company. They have all of the answers, they are smarter than everyone else and you should do as your told or risk losing your job. Upper management periodically conducts employee satisfaction surveys and the category of "would you recommend Philips as a place to work to a friend or relative" is always the lowest rated category. Nothing has been done to improve that rating and it's been several years now of extremely low ratings. Obviously, not a priority for upper management.
