    I have been working at Philips Healthcare (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is okay
    People are nice
    people focused company
    You can stay as long as you want if you can follow one simple policy - "You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours"
    Benefits are decent but not as good as they boast - check out new policies

    Cons

    People are nice but not as a team. They play safe game and when you challenge they act as if they do not know what you are talking about.

    CEO is clueless. Strategy changes after every quarter results. All these years, they wasted tons of money calling it "One Philips" and trying to integrate different divisions and now they are again spending double of it to disintegrate the same.

    There are managers either who doesn't know what they are doing or those who micro manage veterans like college out kids. And there are managers who just believe that there is nothing beyond their knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is not a completely manufacturing/ production company. You cannot fix every problem with Lean/ Six Sigma methodologies.

    Being in a leadership role doesn't mean forcing your team to do what you say but take their inputs and improvise it. Talk to your internal analysts before paying millions of $ to a top-tier consulting firm and getting the same version.

    It's high time you start working for what you get paid!!!

    Philips Healthcare not all its cracked up to be.

    I have been working at Philips Healthcare

    Pros

    There is plenty of work developing medical equipment. Philips had a strong brand in clinical healthcare at one time but it is fading quickly. The pros: 1. The name Philips. 2. Some really great people work there, great minds. 3. Andover site is very nice to work at, even has a gym for employees and a huge cafeteria.

    Cons

    Philips has layoffs roughly every six months, sometimes three times a year. There is little job security. The vacancies following job layoffs are filled by politically connected (friends with the senior leadership with demoted senior management people who then resign due to the demotion. It is a downward spiral to be wary of. GE products are taking off right now in the clinical space. There are very few clinical people, if any, left at Philips who actually can provide clinical knowledge and clinical use to a product. The engineers have no idea how a product is used clinically. It is amazing any products actually work. The team work has deteriorated and many folks there are just trying to keep there jobs. I am thankful to be out of Philips. If you have a job decision to make, work somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone at Philips is a manager. Clean house from the top down. There are way too many titles at Philips that are preventing progress in order to secure their own jobs. Stop the politics from the top down. You keep thinning the ranks when you should clean your own penthouse.

    Pros

    Good work environment, talented people. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs. Management concerned with schedules over quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain your investment in employees. Try to find internal opportunities instead of layoff. Assist with skill set modifications to retain employees. Show real action on quality not just talk.

    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation,

    Cons

    Very poor Management, if you are not friends with either supervisor or manager you will never advance career wise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equal employment opportunities for everyone. It is written on the employment website that employment is equal for all but management already has a candidate for a position before it is even posted.

    Pros

    The people were extremely nice to work with. Great team spirit that I still miss today.

    Cons

    Healthcare is a brutal bottom line business and Philips leads the way in cutting cost to profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the future over making the numbers today.

    I worked at Philips Healthcare

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Hard working people. Good marketing and vision.

    Cons

    Always one step behind GE. The management team is allowed to make decisions that thwart business growth. All marketing and nothing to back it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance individuals that interact with customers into management positions. Management has been away from the customer for too long to have a real understanding about what the customer really needs and wants. Become less frigid. Flexibility will grow business faster than "that's how we've always done it" attitudes.
