I have been working at Philips Lighting full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Some of the people are very pelasant and are in a group-think mode. Traditional business is somewhat stable, but losing market share especially LED due to high price points.

Cons

For new hires, you will be challenged if part of the Genlyte aquisition. Lots of anitquated databases retrieving inforamtion, chaotic envorinment. Need to be a "change master". So many restructures with this side of the business, very difficult for a new employee. Legacy employess sceptical of anyone new.

Advice to Management

Get rid of your layers of beurocracy. Listen to ideas of employess who have experience from better managed companies exclusive of Philips. Get the antiquated systems on aS400 like ManMan and Glovia onto SAP and get with the modern world. Stop procrastinating.
