    Pros

    We used to have a great team and high morale. Lately we are losing people faster than we can replace them.

    Cons

    If we are lucky enough to get replacements the people we do get are lacking and not up to par. We are so short staffed we have to keep them

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people, listen to the people at the bottom

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

    Pros

    Was a great Dutch company in 2006-2010, Culture was exceptional, diversity valued. 2010 things changed, It was common to see longevity of those seasoned employees who grew with company retire with the company. MBAs was the degree to have and it had great placement throughout the Organization. Money was great over 6 figures for Senior Management role. Simplicity Points rewarding for efforts. Gym and Cafeteria as awesome.

    Cons

    2010 things changed in the Organization. Quality Compliance a Nightmare, Poor documentation, validation and verification, mmm questionable at best. Leadership changed like the clock on the wall and so did the experience that departed. No ownership from top management. Long hours, expectations, work until it gets done. Average hours 75 hours a week, that was the expectations, not dare leave or you be let go for not being a team player. Late nights, getting home early in the wee hours 1-2am just to wake back up and start at 8am. 2012 was even worse and followed with 2013, and 2014.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the program and take care of your people. Take ownership, be accountable and walk with integrity. Set expectations, be visible and remember, the work that you and your team do is for the customer, end user -patient throughout the world. Be a leader by instilling trust, mutual respect and honesty.

    Pros

    Great Way to Obtain experience in engineering while going to school. Ability to talk to really smart people and get perspective that school can't provide.

    Cons

    Slow work flow sometimes, especially when dealing with vendors, and other engineers overseas. Quality process is too slow.

    Advice to Management

    Make "what needs to be done" part clearer. Clean up the Quality process.
