Philips – Why Work For Us?


"Technology became a part of my life, and I realized it can be a very personal part of everyone's life." ck Andrade

Over 125 years ago, Frederik and Gerald Philips started a small lightbulb company in Eindhoven. Little did they realize that it would become a global force of innovation, committed to improving billions of lives worldwide. But it did.

Today, Philips is a world leading health technology company with a vision to make life better for people worldwide through meaningful innovation. Making good on this promise depends on our passionate, inspirational, collaborative and diverse team.    We have over 17,000+ amazing people in North America but are always looking for more.

Progress happens outside of your comfort zone. Working at Philips isn’t just about the next stage in your career as a professional. It’s an experience filled with unexpected moments that will transform you in lasting and positive ways, as it did for Harold both personally and professionally.  Challenge yourself at Philips so we can improve the world together with technology. 

Don't just make a living. Make a difference. Working at Philips as an intern or early-career professional isn’t just about starting your first ‘serious’ job.

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

    Pros

    Philips is consistently on the cutting edge of Patient Monitoring development. Philips is the undisputed leader in the space and by default they get a seat at the table in any opportunity. I have seen may 'start ups' come and go and the idea that you have to be a 'small' company to innovate is simply not true. Philips has a culture that believes in and heavily invests in being the leader. That is why other players copy them.

    Cons

    Like all major companies there are plenty of things that can irritate an employee. With that said, many of the people I work with here have been employees for a decade or longer, even in high turnover jobs. This alone speaks volumes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on the quarterly report metrics and more on the long term viability of the business, especially toward the end of the year.

    Clinical Educator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Philips (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    One phone screen, one conference call, one "in person" interview (included interviewers by video call). The last two were very repetitive- almost duplicates of each other. The entire process was generally pleasant, but the final interview was a bit awkward. I spoke to multiple people at once, some by video chat. Those on video were not visible to me, meaning I could not make eye contact or truly interact with them. Being that I was interviewing for a position as an instructor, not being able to see listeners was a real disadvantage.
