    Former Employee - Inventory Control Coordinator in Bothell, WA

    I worked at Philips Healthcare (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great management and staff, recruiters did a good job of bringing in people who were driven, all departments worked well with each other, outside of your normal corporate red tape everything was very efficient.

    Cons

    my department didn't get many of the normal holidays as we dealt with international customers and emergency shipments. starting pay was excellent but raises were few and far between during my time.

    Advice to Management

    could have done more to recognize employees who were valuable through raises bonuses or promotions.

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people, committment to excellence, nice working conditions,.Highly ethical

    Cons

    The company is constantly in a state of change. Always trying to re-invent themselves. Good intentions, few real sucesses. When they have a real success, they tend to rest on their laurals.

    Advice to Management

    Give the customers what they want. Don't make products first and then tell the customer this is what they need.

    Pros

    Great company overall. Employee oriented management. Classes and courses are constantly offered to improve the competitiveness of their employees.

    Cons

    Bad management decisions for past couple of years reflected some antagonism on mgmt level. It was much better 3 years ago.

    Pros

    The technology was great. Good pay and benefits. Fellow FSE's were great to work with.

    Cons

    Management claims to be concerned about employees, but it's all lies. Forcing flex-time and 24/7 on employees or else threats of dismissal.

    Advice to Management

    Management is full of liars. When we were laid-off in November of 2012 we were told we were eligible for rehire. Many of us have applied for posted positions we were already well trained and experienced on only to be told they were looking for more qualified candidates. It turns out they hired younger people at half the salary we were paid.

    Pros

    From a salary and benefits perspective, treatment is fair, programs are good
    Many long-time employees, very likable people
    Culture seeks growth, but emphasizes integrity, keeping everything above board
    Genuine focus on work-life balance
    Flexibility, with many employees choosing to work from home at least part-time
    Culture of caring - about hospital customers, the patients they serve, employees and their families, the communities we live in. This is clear in every leadership talk I have heard.

    Cons

    Accountability seems lacking at times
    NA leaders could work on their stage presence
    Flattened hierarchy limits upward mobility for aggressive climbers
    Decision-making can be slow (a consequence of staying above board with everything)

    Pros

    Rewarding job making imaging equipment to help patients. Opportunity for travel and working with international colleagues/vendors.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganizations, company losing business share to GE and other healthcare leaders. Faced with hiring freeze a few times.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core products instead of diversifying to meet all markets. While trying to build the best product, budget was not considered and we priced ourselves out of interested customers' range.

    Pros

    Ability to unlock tremendous opportunity and move with the organization.

    Cons

    Immature and/or virtually nonexistent leadership permeates the cultural fabric of many business groups throughout the organization. The landscape is virtually homogeneous and lacks real diversity. Minorities and mature workers will not do well here. The few women in senior management roles secure their positions by undermining top performers and independent thinkers. Individuals failing to fit into the fold are often pushed out of their departments and/or the organization altogether. Those who survive are either “valued” employees or management clones.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the parasites and take a chance on progressive thinkers.

    Review your promotability process.
