Negative Outlook

I worked at Philips as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

The interaction with great people with vast amount of knowledge in the field, the learning opportunities and the compensation benefits are the best

Cons

Too much bureaucracy, not open to recruiting young talent, supervisors are not open to new ideas and teams have no much time to perform because everyones hands are already full and members spend most time in meetings than actually doing the work

Advice to Management

Please keep politics out and let the subordinates do their jobs and prove themselves before forming any opinions and making assumptions about their performance. Let the evaluation be based on performance and not simply based on opinions that have no basis.

    I worked at Philips full-time

    Pros

    The company brand attracts great, intelligent people + dynamic management + good work/life balance + good benefits + global open culture (easy to contact and branch out outside your own department) + nice work environment

    Cons

    location (everything happens in Eindhoven) + company's outlook not so good + organizational inertia (but hard to avoid with a company this size) + little growth

    Advice to Management

    allow staff to be innovative and take risks (less day to day, more outward looking), the company needs it for growth and innovation
