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.

    I worked at Philips full-time

    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.

    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.
