    Pros

    It is always a plus working at a company that creates products that save lives and improve the quality of life for others. Philips takes good care of its employees, with many opportunities for conferences, field visits, and other non-work educational experiences. The work is challenging and requires a high level of adaptability, which keeps everyone sharp.

    Cons

    The employee review system can be intimidating. A piece of advice I have received from seasoned employees: (to paraphrase) They won't make a software engineer a manager. Especially not a good one.

    Advice to Management

    The opportunity to be a leader in the workplace is of incredible value to every employee. Creating more opportunities to move up the chain will keep people working their hardest.

    Pros

    Philips Reedsville is a great environment to work where they support, encourage and develop all employees. Good strong leaders that are customer focused, honest, and open. The location makes great products that save lives. The compensation is the best in the area and they are focused on building teams, driving results, and dare I say it, "engaging employees." Alot of great community involvement and great employees makes this a great place to work.

    Cons

    The site could use a pavillion in back for outdoor meetings.

    Advice to Management

    For senior leadership, please continue to drive change and continuous improvement. The site will continue to improve the more you invest your time and efforts into the team.

    Thin out non customer facing positions... they spend too much time and money on improvement models that only make things worse.
