I have been working at Philips Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Generally great people to work with and great place to start off a career. Has very innovative and great cutting-edge technology.

Cons

It has all the challenges that many big companies face: lots of approvals required for simple changes, lots of duplicate work being done... Also, the company could do a better job of promoting its products better as I hardly see any commercials or advertisements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of all the hurdles to getting things done for the customer.

    I have been working at Philips Healthcare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay - benefits are really good. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Travel can get old at times - not the right job for anyone with young children at home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the branches of the organization that are blazing trails and creating profits. Trim the fat from the branches of the organization whose day has came and gone.

    Intelligent, professional people in a very politicized, contentious environment.

    I worked at Philips Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Philips Resuscitation (Heartstream, originally) are a group of some of the finest research and clinically minded developers with whom I have worked. Strong benefits and good compensation package.

    Cons

    As part of Philips global companies, and by the inclination of a number of managers project and business management is aggressively and uselessly competitive, to the detriment of products and schedules. Decisions are arbitrary and often focused on sabotage of competitive projects, or cover-up of poor decision making. Good people are RIFed to cover bad managers, with the explicit support of HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to gain better insight to the project management and use HR to weed bad managers.
