    I worked at Philips Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some of the greatest people in the world to work with. Great middle management attitude: "This is your territory, own it!" Challenging and demanding at the same time.

    Cons

    Too many changes in the last couple of years with a lack of focus. Accelerate did not effect all products, especially niche' ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Niche' products need true leadership and do not deserve to be rolled over to sales channels that do not understand the departments' specialty or needs. It would be better to sell them off vs. destroying the reputation of a company that you purchased.

    Pros

    Philips Healthcare takes pride in what it manufactures, however, lack of leadership continues to fail its employees.

    Pros

    Healthcare is an excellent place to be. Philips has better than average benefits and flexible, for the most part, with work life balances.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Philips being a public traded company cares more about the stock strength than whether an excellent employee keeps their job. When it does (which has often over the past 3 years) lay people off, they do not look at the true issues of why they struggle at being successful. Their Sales Operations management is failing this Philips miserably, but the management seems to remain. They continually let their field sales teams down and keep them from succeeding. Philips' incentive management has had 300% turnover in the past couple years and can't seem to find replacements. It has to do with their management (director and sr manager levels).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the executive leadership: your HR needs to be more honest with you about why you lose you EXCELLENT employees to other companies or through your layoffs. You sales teams are excellent - unfortunately their sales operations teams fail them, along with their tools to make Philips successful. Take a look at overhauling your Sales Operations leadership and your HR leadership and see improvements.
