    Former Employee - Mechanical Design Engineer in Cleveland, OH

    I worked at Philips Healthcare as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been seeking for quite some time now to work for a company that produces products that are helpful to the cause of medical science. Since the crux of my career has been confined to military defense components organizations in the medical arena have disregarded my attempts to switch to making medical devices/equipment.

    Cons

    I was taken back by the amount of information each employee, especially in the engineering departments each employee is expected to retain. I heard common comments that there is no way each person should be expected to remember everything to ensure each product is always compliant to all the various specifications..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggested that specialized sub-groups be organized that could over-see each engineering discipline: one group for mechanical, one for electrical, one materials, etc. the purpose of each group would be to be the information collecting point. Each group would be responsible for any spec changes, updates, refinements, etc that pertain to their specialized talent. Then when new drawings are created or revised these specialized sub-group would be responsible to review the documents to ensure that everything was in compliance. That way the designers could focus on making components/assemblies pertinent to the design and the sub-groups could just focus on making sure the FDA compliance.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Learn complex equipment and describe it to others. Some travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Poor communications. Politics. Lack of growth opportunities. being a global company creates communication problems not only with language, but also time zone constraints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    let everyone know what is going on, and be willing to accept information that has not been sanitized through normal appropriate channels.

    I worked at Philips Healthcare

    Pros

    Very simple tasks. Lots of down time. Never really had to work that hard, but put in a little effort and you will look good.

    Cons

    Mindless work for the most part. Was just running software tests on their CT scanners. Many times the tests were as simple as turning the machines on and off for a few hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I didn't have much interaction with any of the higher ups. For the most part everything seemed to be just fine.
