    I worked at Philips as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to work in HSDP as a contract employee. I must say. I had a great experience working under great leaders and awesome managers. Loved every part of working with my colleagues (Who are the best in the business) Got good recognition for my work @ HSDP, i wish i would get a chance to work again as a permanent employee and i wish i would settle in philips for lifetime

    Cons

    As i mentioned i was thrown out of HSDP for various reasons, Because contract was ending with philips even though they could have extended my contract for my effort.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not throw out good employees even though they are contract ones
