I worked at Philips as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Management is fair and encourages suggestions. Coworkers look for ways to help one another to succeed. There are opportunities to learn more ways to help do your job. What I liked most is that management will support their employees in the event of customer complaints. This is a customer service job and there are occasional customer complaints, usually from the same curmudgeons. However, most of the customers call regularly and are great to work with.

Cons

Because it is a customer service job, you are tied to the telephones and only allowed short breaks. Most training done online and expected to be taken between phone calls.

    I worked at Philips full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart and full of good and innovative ideas. It has a strong presence in medical devices and business units seem to be doing well. As a result, there are potential outlets to transform innovative ideas into real products and positively impact people's lives and well-being.

    Cons

    Like many R&D organizations inside big companies, it seems to be very difficult to get funding from business units to perform applied research and development. Very frustrated with the team lead whose mind wasn't on doing his work or leading his team. The company was OK with that though. Maybe I was just unlucky.

    Advice to Management

    You have good people in R&D. Please take advantage of them.

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

    Pros

    a global force, many bright thinkers

    Cons

    too much change. With little chance to digest the inertia set forth by one new direction, another one rolls out and the "real work cant even be seen given all the time and energy spent on the churn.

    Advice to Management

    think twice, act once. less confusion that way for the team(s) involved
