I worked at Philips as an intern (Less than a year)
Good pay, Given responsiblilites of full time employee, laid back work environment, helpful staff
Sometimes didn't have much work to do due to a lull in business
I have been working at Philips (Less than a year)
Very friendly people with profound engineering knowledge. So smart and innovative. The team is not that big. Therefore, more interaction between team members and less political affairs
The software used is not that well known. No free coffee. The cafeteria is tiny and has very limited choices for lunch and breakfast.

I have been seeking for quite some time now to work for a company that produces products that are helpful to the cause of medical science. Since the crux of my career has been confined to military defense components organizations in the medical arena have disregarded my attempts to switch to making medical devices/equipment.
I was taken back by the amount of information each employee, especially in the engineering departments each employee is expected to retain. I heard common comments that there is no way each person should be expected to remember everything to ensure each product is always compliant to all the various specifications..
Advice to Management
I suggested that specialized sub-groups be organized that could over-see each engineering discipline: one group for mechanical, one for electrical, one materials, etc. the purpose of each group would be to be the information collecting point. Each group would be responsible for any spec changes, updates, refinements, etc that pertain to their specialized talent. Then when new drawings are created or revised these specialized sub-group would be responsible to review the documents to ensure that everything was in compliance. That way the designers could focus on making components/assemblies pertinent to the design and the sub-groups could just focus on making sure the FDA compliance.
