Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Stable company with growth potential.

Cons

Bottom line is always money. Have laid off and downsized a lot in past five years, employees stepped up and are doing the job of two to three people without compensation. Work hard and your only reward is remaining employed.

Advice to Management

Take care of your employees, value them and reward them.

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

    Pros

    Have been employed since it was Respironics. When it was a one man show it went rather well, mangers knew your work and cared about you as an individual.

    Cons

    Since it has become Phillips Respiroinics I have had numerous (3 in the past two years) managers who do not care or know the companies HR policies. Your just a number here and who cares about the time you devoted to making this company grow. Newer employess and managers have all the correct answers so they think.

    Advice to Management

    Get some trainaing on how to interact with the people you manage. Show some empathy for the issues thayt are dealing wiht in thiser personal lives as well as waht they contribute at work.
