I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Philips cares deeply about patient care, and the impact it's products make on quality of care. Ethics and integrity are high, and compliance to regulations globally are closely adhered too and monitored. Being a large company, growing a long term career is also possible and encouraged, although it is not easy and you must take ownership of you own career development.

Cons

Philips today is a company comprised of many acquisitions, which has created a culture that varies widely depending on the sector you are part of. Avoid imaging systems, heavy handed dictatorial management has created a negative culture. On the other hand, patient monitoring (PCCI) and HHS are very different, more collaborative, values employees and what they do.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees and customers, they are the future. Spend time creating a new imaging systems before it implodes.

    Pros

    Work facilities are really nice and comfortable. Some buildings even have gyms for employees. Hours and benefits are good. There are some opportunities for advancement for the right people.

    Cons

    Team Supervisors aren't always supportive of those with outside obligations to family. Issues with team members who aren't performing up to par aren't always properly addressed by Team Supervisors.

    Not good employee training program. Existing employees don't seem aggressive in career progress and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focus on core growth and direction. Consistant changes will distract employees focus and reduce productivity.
