    Pros

    There's so much potential in this industry. For corporate driven individuals willing to relocate, this industry is for you.

    Cons

    Like many corporations, directives from disconnected upper management often take precedence over what's good for each business entity. This is why it's hard to recommend Signify as a company. It completely depends on how corporate deems the worth of the brand you work for. Each company or brand is divided and their individual departments are compartmentalized, often making objectives and finances work against each other for the greater good. In addition, the industry itself is still unstable. Traditional lighting companies are transitioning into electronic companies and struggling to make profits. This creates tight budgets and lower personnel.

    I worked at Philips Lighting full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, ability to work from home and good people to work with.

    Cons

    In the past two years, the company has shown a lack of appreciation for its people. Employees who were with the company 10, 15, 20, or 25 years were shown the door without a second thought by upper management. The company is also so focused on reporting that little marketing is done since everyone in marketing is focused on tables, reporting, analyses, and charts.
