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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, awesome team of FE's, don't want to leave.

    Cons

    Local RSM making life unbearable, she is a B and no idea what she is doing!! I need a true manager, not a baby sitter, I need leadership, not a dictator, Philips needs to address local area service management, they need to purge all the bad managers, ASAP!!

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some you, start thinning the heard and giving new managers a chance. No compromise.
