I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Salary, people, lots of room for growth. Several promotions along the way. In spite of company doing what they consider to be poorly, still give annual raises, and bonuses.

Cons

Work/life balance, they will work you to death if you let them.

Advice to Management

Constant Org changes are a problem.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn about the development of Medical Devices in a fast growing company [Philips Oral Healthcare], that is both separate from as well as part of, a much larger company [Philips Electronics] in compliance with Quality System Regulations. Pockets of truly inspired and very intelligent people can be found in most of the departments and functions that make up the company.

    Cons

    Being part of a larger company sometimes results in Philips Corporate forcing processes that do not add value and ways of working that dilute rather than increase focus and efficiency. A significant portion of the employees has become expected to put in long hours, in some cases resulting in unsatisfactory work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to work-life balance of employees; continuing on the current path will not be sustainable in the long run for some of the most valuable employees. Make more courageous decisions with respect to the development roadmap; kill projects that are hogging resources yet adding little to top line / bottom line when reviewed at a realistic business case.
