Best Places to Interview: 2017 (#98)
Philips has been recognized in BCG’s 2018 ranking of top 50 global innovators.
“We’re up 30 places versus the previous year, to 49th, according to the Boston Consulting Group’s prestigious worldwide survey. Two factors contribute to our ranking: a survey among senior global innovation executives plus our recent performance in the marketplace where it matters most -- serving our customers and consumers in hospitals and homes all around the world” Frans van Houten, Philips CEO.
Philips plans to relocate its North American headquarters from Andover to Cambridge, bringing with it about 2,000 employees. Philips CEO Frans van Houten reveals that the idea is to move the Massachusetts operations closer to more software talent, to startups, and to the company’s local university and hospital partners, such as MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital.

I applied in-person. I interviewed at Philips.
Talked with recruiters at a career fair at school. After the fair was over I waited and had a brief interview with one of the recruiters. Nailed every single question they asked, but was told I couldn't work there due to me not taking a data structures course.
