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

Pros

Great co-workers and environment. Big company that seems to care about its employees. Decent pay and benefits.

Cons

Sometimes hospital staff can be very demanding, but I guess that comes with the job.

Advice to Management

It's not saying "No" to the customer if you explain to them exactly what their contract covers.

    I worked at Philips full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The compensation, benefits, and work-life balance aspects were good. It's a global company with many resources and experts. The people are dedicated and engaged. There was opportunity to grow within the department.

    Cons

    The company did not have a strong vision or strategy. With a single business unit, there were 2 relocations (meaning 3 different locations) over the course of only 6 years, and then the business was closed down completely. It's an indication of how the company focused on the wrong thing, i.e. cost-cutting efforts versus addressing the weakness in the core business.

    The company also did not have a strong process in place to identify additional opportunities outside of the immediate department for their top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in retaining top talent and offering growth opportunities. Focus more on long-term strategy that is sustainable.
