    Pros

    Great work/life balance, Your manager really dictates the experience you have, it's a big place so there are many jobs and great opportunity for advancement

    Cons

    Lots of constant change, always seems to be a new initiative, culture of the company is quite Dutch

    Advice to Management

    Transforming the company for better profitability is the proper path and you have the right idea... this company needs to act differently to leapfrog competitors

  2. Customer/Patient focus, tremendous effort in making Quality products

    Pros

    Support from the management to take risk, trust employees to take charge of the situation/crisis/issues etc. Competitive salary; Work-life balance; Excellent 401K matching - 50% up to 6% of base salary + 4% additional. a variety of choices for Healthcare insurance plans; employer sponsored life insurance, optional life insurance coverage at a nominal charge; Fitness gym available, fitness reimbursement;

    Cons

    No employee stock bonus; Salaries could have been a little bit better; Corporate involvement could slow things down; Too much corporate control over business supporting functions - such as IT, finance, procurement functions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to senior Royal Philips leadership - Please provide a guidance frameworks for the business groups on how to run and let the business groups take in-charge of their territory - How they manage their R&D funds, IT tools, supply chain/engineering support functions etc.; Consolidation of business systems to one-tool and one-process will jeopardize the businesses; low performers might step up a bit; however this could be a huge impact for high performers with a very lean operating model;

  3. Great company with passionate coworkers.
