    I worked at Philips North America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great healthcare benefit, but that is all.

    Cons

    Philips buys businesses that operate well and create great product then they break them down and choke them to death while claiming all of their innovation as their own. European HQ micromanages and stifles every division to the point of crippling their performance and efficiency. Americans quickly get their attitude of "If you ain't Dutch, you don't mean much".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your divisions manage themselves within their own expertise and especially their own country's industry and market models and methods. Realize you didn't invent everything (anything), so drop your "Dutch Masters" attitude. There is a reason you close up half of the divisions you buy.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
