    Pros

    I love the company and it's values. Generous vacation and sick time. Offers full boat insurance, full gym, full cafeteria, onsite doctor appointments, bus passes, extra discounts for businesses outside of the organization.

    Cons

    Reminds me of high school, Managers plays favorites. Any type of IT changes to make the company systems work for you are put onto the back burner for months or years.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop treating adults like children.

    I have been working at Philips Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In many instances if you are willing to put in the work and hours you can grow developmentally in any direction you want.

    Cons

    Work-Life balance continues to decline, benefits are sub par in comparison to other companies in the same field. Management is driving departmental changes fast and hard which sometimes results in not following the processes or methodology that are required in order to yield desirable results. Also moving fast and hard can make for staff priorities and objectives to continue to change making it challenging to focus as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down, remember people don't leave jobs, they leave managers. Your staff is much more productive when focused and also when they are treated respectively and allowed to have an opinion that differs from your own.

    Pros

    You will work with a great team manager. Each job will have a few bad apples (coworkers), but for the most part people at Philips know and do their job really well, which will make working with them easy. It's important for me to get along with coworkers. It's easy to go to school and work at the same time. Scheduling and a flexible manager who encourages going back to school makes it all possible. Great benefits and 401k package.

    Cons

    The work load is consistently overwhelming due to the understaffing and can leave you disgruntled at times if you allow it to get to you.

    Advice to Management

    Must keep a full staff. Understaffing creates more of a work load on other employees, which can create a low moral environment due to the overexertion of work.
