    Pros

    The money is good, the benefits are great.

    Cons

    You'll start banging your head through a wall in the first 6 months. People have no drive here at Philips to excel, no motivation to better themselves, no desire for a better customer experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean the slate with old employees who don't care and offer low morale. Cut off the middle management, and engage your main workforce to learn and grow. Create renewed interest within your company.

    Great people on the workfloor, worst managers in the world

    Former Employee - Marketing Director  in  Best (Netherlands)

    Pros

    Passionate employees who will go on no matter what.

    Cons

    Management straight out of a Dilbert cartoon. No knowledge, no vision, no empathy, no social skills, no appreciation for their employees nor for their customers. Management consists primarily of yesheads, just there for their own careers, kiss the bosses and kick the working force. Too much focus on procedures, no focus on customer or product. Reducing on creativity, knowledge and expertise, expanding on talentless spreadsheet managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign your jobs a.s.a.p. The company will do much better without you and employee engagement will skyrocket.

    Internship at Philips overall experience was not bad but disappointing for a high performer

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The interaction with great people with vast amount of knowledge in the field, the learning opportunities and the compensation benefits are the best

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy, not open to recruiting young talent, supervisors are not open to new ideas and teams have no much time to perform because everyones hands are already full and members spend most time in meetings than actually doing the work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep politics out and let the subordinates do their jobs and prove themselves before forming any opinions and making assumptions about their performance. Let the evaluation be based on performance and not simply based on opinions that have no basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need comitment to longer term vision, and stick to initiatives that have created valuable relationships.

    Pros

    I worked with some great people who were very experienced and knowlegeable. Enjoyed working for Philips, since they were a company who focused on hiring talented individuals and developing quality products.

    Cons

    Your overall experience depended heavily on your manager. If you had a great manager = great experience. Bad manager = bad experience. This can translate to any company, but Philips does not tend to weed out the ineffective managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on great leadership.
