Philips Healthcare – Why Work For Us?

Philips Healthcare is a world-wide leader in cardiac care, patient monitoring, home healthcare solutions, and related customer service.

The Philips Healthcare business is grounded in the belief that clinical excellence and continuous innovation around the patient experience can fundamentally change healthcare as we know it.

'Unlimited development opportunities' sounds like a lofty statement, but when you embrace a journey of lifelong learning and take advantage of Philips annual individual development planning process & resources, it quickly becomes a reality.

At Philips, we only ask that every team member share our passion for improving lives, and from there the direction your career takes over time is up to you. Whether you want to make a lateral move to work in a new modality, pursue a vertical move to deepen your resume, or redirect your career in a whole new industry, the size and breadth of our business can help you get there.

Take for example, Ali Esfandiari, a Director of Sales Operations for Philips Healthcare, who began his career in Electrical Engineering and has since led his career in a variety of both planned and unplanned directions. With guidance from a Philips mentor and on-the-job experience of learning what he truly finds most interesting, he has ascended into his dream role with a team he couldn't speak more highly of. Check out his full story here.

We get it. The role of work, and what you want out of it, has drastically changed over the years, and that's not a bad thing. Because to succeed in the healthcare industry, you need to be working for more than yourself. You need to commit to being your best for others, and in doing so, leave a legacy behind that you're proud of.  Many Philips Healthcare employees- past and present- know what this feels like. We hope you get to experience that feeling too as our future employee.

Take Georgina Michael's story, as one such example. Inspired by her passion for hiking and nature, she uses the energy she gets from living her passion to help bring the future of healthcare to others as a Global Stakeholder Relations Manager for Philips Healthcare.  View her full story.

Imagine waking up each morning, knowing that what you'll do with your day will impact the future of healthcare around the world. And that the best, brightest and even obscure ideas that you have will be valued and considered. Because the only way to create that future is to innovate beyond what already exists. That's what a career in Philips Healthcare is like, and what you could be a part of.

We take insights from some of the most recognized healthcare organizations and physicians - like Georgia Regents Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, and Mercy and use them to deliver industry-leading healthcare innovations that touch the lives of real people. Like the 3D imaging equipment that introduced Philips Healthcare employee, Seth Harpster, to his unborn baby girl.

    I worked at Philips Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)


    Great bosses. Good training, Good pay. Overall, the best place I have ever had the privilege of working. I would work for them again in a minute...


    The way they pulled their shares off of our 401K in 2008 without informing us, lead the plan admin to put our money where they wanted, basically losing may an employees retirement. Mean while Philips stock took a very small hit during the recession.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Philips Healthcare.


    There job requirements are very specific, few questions. If you don't have FDA or radiology background don't bother to apply. It's all about the resume and the experience with these people.
