I worked at Philips full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good culture and interesting people

Cons

less payment than competitors on the market

Advice to Management

Too slow and talk too much when decide something - it is in culture. But in some cases I see no deep enough understanding of the core as well - let's say "Apple" thinking is absent.

    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Huge global organization with lots of international advancement opportunities. Vast portfolio of very interesting businesses. Lots of opportunities to develop your talent if you are a rising star.

    Cons

    Dutch management culture can be maddening. Loves talking about innovation, but not so great at doing it. Very risk averse, and slow process of aligning stakeholders sucks the creativity right out of the process. Practices innovation for innovation's sake, rather than brininging to market stuff that people really want. Dutch egalitarian mindset makes it really hard to move your salary along. HR as a function is an abomination.

    Advice to Management

    Make a strategy and work it. When things don't go according to plan, recalibrate rather than reinvent a new strategy
