    I have been working at Philips North America

    Pros

    Variety of interesting people and projects. Opportunity to work in flexible manner, relaxed atmosphere. Opportunity to develop technically but also in other directions.

    Cons

    Too much process.and other overhead. Bean-counting of output and performance. No opportunity to work on a project long-term without having to defend all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce overhead and shield employees of higher-level annoyances. Do better than bean-counting of output and performance. Leave space for creativity and innovation.

    I worked at Philips North America

    Pros

    There are parts of the company that are doing work that can greatly improve peoples' everyday life. Benefits are very good

    Cons

    Management tends to want "yes people". They don't necessarily like to hear honest opinions when a highly experienced employee feels the group is heading in the wrong direction. When the "plan" doesn’t work out and the employee is proved to have been right; the whole situation is swept under the rug. After a change in management I clearly was seen as being highly compensated; and was a target for being layed off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversity should really be a reality and not just a catch phrase in an employee hand book.
