    I worked at Philips Electronics full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work with very bright people, truly global scope, opportunity to develop skills and experience across a broad range of roles, moves with the times and adapts and has an inspiring vision for the future

    Cons

    Changes too much. In 10 years I had 10 managers. HR process and career development is variable depending on individuals. Increasingly short term focused. Constantly trying to go from being a good company to being a great company but always falls short. Has a dated legacy that it cannot get rid of despite its modern ambitions. Slow, too many decision makers, too many decisions made based on emotions but dressed up as facts.

    Advice to Management

    Be bold - if you believe in taking a direction, do it properly rather than playing safe.

    it is hard to get proper guidance in philips, because people all do the things in their unique way and sometime make the procedure very complicated

    Advice to Management

    need to simplify the procedure and also improve the employee satisfaction level
