    I have been working at Philips Healthcare Informatics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great strategy and many good initiatives addressing the challenges of a changing healthcare environment - cost pressures, aging population, consumerization.

    Cons

    Lots of changes, people, organization, hard to keep up. There are a lot of good intentions for training, career opportunities, growth, but it's much more important to network internally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stability, clarity.

    I have been working at Philips Healthcare Informatics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are great. Good products. Plenty of work. Conditions may vary from site to site.

    Cons

    Philips is a low cost producer of many items, as such developmental programs can sometimes be cut a little short of funding. Layoffs in the US in July due to slow down in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Layoffs send a shudder through the work force and it signals your workers that they are less important than the bottom line. Consider the impact to peoples lives when you are considering how to improve EBITA. Practice what you preach.

    Pros

    Good salary and plenty of opportunities. We build good products that help peoples lives.

    Cons

    Layoffs last week (July 15) because sales are low. More layoffs in the future if sales don't pick up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to the root of the sales problems

    NO LOGICAL DECISIONS; continual changes were designed so upper management could justify their jobs.

    I have been working at Philips Healthcare Informatics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    If you are in the right department the treatment is probably fair; but overall every department is under immense pressure to perform outside and beyond the expectations of yesterday.

    Cons

    So many divisions of a global company; all with conflicting rules; so much confusion and little cooperation between departments; self preservation prevented information sharing. Every day was like re-inventing the wheel with no follow through on great ideas. Conference calls with Corporate always had technical difficulties; contributing to a lack of motivation to get involved. Insecure management breeds insecure employees.

    I worked at Philips Healthcare Informatics full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nice pay and benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Yearly rounds of layoffs! Disappearing departments in Foster City while they continuously build up the team in Bangalore to save costs while the influx of customers/new accounts increase. The build up should be local not off-shore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put effort to local candidates. In the long run, everybody wins.
