    I worked at Philips Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. I had a great team of colleagues and our customer base was exceptional.

    Cons

    We were constantly faced with challenges related to the company being just WAY too big...changes moved at "glacial speed" and we were often beaten by competitors with better/faster product development etc. Frustrating!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the field sales folks to voice an opinion (typically very relevant since they are on the front lines!) about products etc. And try to expedite positive changes!

    I have been working at Philips Healthcare

    Pros

    They are flexible and stable with plenty of interesting projects. The culture is pretty laid back. People are overall friendly and good to work with each day.

    Cons

    There is not much room for advancement especially merit based. You need to gain experience to be promoted which takes years. Not a good place to be if you're a young professional.

    Former Employee - Support Engineer in Alpharetta, GA

    I worked at Philips Healthcare

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are excellent and within line with other companies. The people on my team were for the most part excellent to work with and other teams in the building were by and far very helpful. The daily environment was good from a people perspective

    Cons

    Management or lack thereof. Unfortunately the company hires number crunchers instead of people who know the business. This leads to very short term thinking and managers only worried about fudging spreadsheets to make sure they get their bonus. Leads to frustration within the teams because policies are not good for the employees or the customer. The healthcare side of the company could be doing so much better if there was a common sense knowledge base of how to run things and what the customer actually wants and needs. Layoffs every year for the last number of years leads to high stress and it is turning into a bit of a protect myself and my knowledge situation and is limiting the helpful nature of teamwork

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring numbers crunchers. Go back to hiring managers who have worked in the field of the team they are managing. Actually listen to your employees. Some short term sacrifices can lead to long term success. Stop releasing products before they are ready and train all support staff appropriately. No more train the trainer

    You can work on any new technology as per your liking.

    Talk to employees more and do take their inputs and problems seriously.

    Pros

    Great employer, main focus is on employee development. Good salaries and secondary benefits!

    Cons

    Beurocratic, matrix type of organization, a lot of internal poletics, some managers could improve their leadership skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more in touch with the shop floor, to understand better how the top down decisions affect the employees.

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

    Pros

    Vacation and time off due to seniority was great. However personal or career growth sometimes stunted when business needs were changed by market demands or management.

    Cons

    Change is a constant factor. Never enough time to understand and implement changes especially when wearing multiple hats(responsiblities). Employee input was disrespected leading to lower morale. Previous company culture compared to being "a family" instead of a corporation

    Pros

    Philips is a strong, fare and solid organization with business all over the world. Good place to work with reasonable salaries and stability. Has space for growth and is going through positive transformation.

    Cons

    Philips is a Dutch organization and carries lots of these culture on its own culture. It is serious and truthful organization, but very slow on decision and reactive to new approaches.
