    I had a very enjoyable, learning experience at Philips.

    Mechanical Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Cleveland, OH

    ProsI 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.

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

    Typical mega company that gets in its own way

    Sales Account Manager (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat benefits; decent pay relative to similar organizations

    ConsEmployee turnover; bureaucratic operations; multiple bosses with different agendas; no organic growth, only through mindless acquisitions; not an industry leader;

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere's an issue when a sales representative has to attend a two-hour meeting to attempt to figure out the comp plan, only to discover they will once again have their quota increased and customer base and commission structure decreased. This is a company for people wanting a quasi-governement type j.o.b.

    Manages cost but can't grow

    Management (Former Employee)
    Andover, MA

    ProsMultinational, large company with many businesses and sites. Therefore many career opportunities for advancement.

    ConsVery complicated and often bureaucratic. Organizational structure is matrixed with many stakeholders involved in decisions.
    Able to manage costs tightly but never seems to be able to grow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFoster creativity, allow innovation, simplify decision-making. Treat individual businesses as unique when it comes to customer-facing and overall strategy. Explain clearly why Lighting and Healthcare fit together.
