I worked at Philips full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The corporate campus location is close to my house so my commute is minutes vs hours when working in Boston at another company.

Cons

At the Philips corporate office, managers expect/demand employees to work at night and on weekends. There is no real work-life balance at this company. All the layoffs have resulted in way too much work for those left at the company. Such a shame as I thought this was my "forever" job.

    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salaries, international experience, mostly good people

    Cons

    eurocentric, top heavy, price oriented, lack of marketing savvy and imagination, bureaucratic, fixated on Philips as a brand

    Advice to Management

    You want to be a speed boat but have an oil-tanker's speed and maneuverability. Innovation is smothered under the bureaucracy, rigid thinking and penny pinching management of the divisions. Whoop-de-doo with your Brand roll out, big deal, you change the shield. And what does "Innovation * you" mean?


  2. "Good learning experience"
