Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

- Flexible work environment
- Good benefits
- Easy parking

Cons

- Very metric focused - not how you do it but end performance that matters
- Unpleasant work environment - office is boring, quiet. Buildings on campus need some TLC.
- Everything is outsourced - IT, purchasing, call center, facilities, etc.
- Lots of lay-offs have occurred which have dampened spirits and fostered some fear

Advice to Management

Provide more support to employees - trust them and don't always be so quick to lay-off and outsource.

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

    Pros

    It is a great campus and there are some great people. They do have a good amount of tuition reimbursement, but it is not easy to get approved for it.

    Cons

    The management structure changes constantly. They come up with a reason every year to either give no raises or limit it to 1-2%. They always talk about how they care about the employees and customers, but every decision comes down to what is cheaper for the company, no matter the consequences. It is no wonder that everyone there has been jumping ship over the last 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to how the company was run 5-10 years ago and maybe you will stop loosing all of the talent that made the company successful.
