    I have been working at Philips Research full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting and ever changing projects, work/life balance, clubs and activities, suburban location

    Cons

    shutting down lab to move it 200 miles away to urban location, details of the move still up in the air, undervalues senior staff, uses the "carrot on a string" method to motivate rather than something tangible, claims to care about staff but actions show otherwise, shoestring budgets, low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're losing key staff members due to your arrogance in assuming we will follow a company and take a financial hit. Do more to lessen that blow. Figure out where the new location will be exactly, for months it was one location -- but not that may not be it. Think about how a move from a suburban to an urban setting effects senior staff with families and children, think about the increased cost of living in the new location vs the current cost of living -- raises do not help as much as you think
