    Simple High Paying Job...Comes With Corporate Politics Though

    Pros

    High pay, cheap benefits ($82 a month for medical, dental, vision, & prescription insurance), 2.5% of yearly salary bonus, good work-life balance, relatively easy job, no experience/college degree required. At times, hours will go by without having to work. Job can be done from the comfort of your bed. 216 hours of PTO. Was able to work from home during pandemic. Beautiful and modern office space. Extensive COVID-19 protocols.

    Cons

    Management can be clueless and has a tendency to micromanage. Frequent updates on status, including bathroom breaks are required. Limit of 5 sick days available every 6 months despite 8 days being available. Departments tend to throw blame at each other and bicker instead of working together to achieve a common goal. Field Service Engineers (who we work with mainly as part of our job) tend to be rude and ignorant to current procedures and processes. Philips is similar to US Air Force...every month you are required to undergo training and complete written examinations on material you are required to learn in Philips University every month. Frequent changes to process are hard to keep up with.

    Great company to work for, love the values, leadership can be hit or miss

    Pros

    The company has great values; it is employee centric, the benefits are good, it cares about innovation, the environment, its customers and ethics. It takes its branding and brand promise serious both internally and externally. If you work for a great leader, it is an absolutely amazing experience to work at Philips. I genuinely loved working for that company for 11 years. I learned a lot, I was challenged, I grew, I made really good connections across the organization. It can be a great company to work for.

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations, offshoring jobs to India and other places to save costs while negatively impacting employee engagement and customer satisfaction. Leadership within the divisions and markets can be seriously hit or miss with poor leaders affecting the culture of a whole division within the organization while other divisions within Philips do exceptionally well both on the employee engagement front and customer experience front, Philips leadership either puts a blind eye or is not even noticing how detrimental certain leaders are which results in turnover of highly skilled, loyal employees.
