What people are saying about Philips
Healthcare Administrators/Healthcare Leadership

Hi Fishbowl Community, I recently have an interview for a technical support position at Philips. I have talked with their recruiter and hiring manager earlier this week. There will be a technical interview meeting with the team. What do you think I should prepare for? Thanks in advance. Is there any place that I could practice the mock interview?

All about the Metrics. Make them look good an you will do fine. Some empowerment to make decisions on your accounts. Benefits are very good but usually healthcare costs will be higher than your pay raise.
Local Management will try to have you shift your hours at their convenience to avoid paying overtime. Local management lately has been terrible. Pay will never increase as fast as the COL Management demands a high level of world class service yet they don't compensate for such demands. Companies like Microsoft in the same area will pay almost double for similar stress level. Retention of newer employees has been substandard. Most leave due to 2 things. 1. Management. 2. Salaries. Most Hospitals will pay better and have less work to do. Work/Home balance isnt great. You are basically supposed to have Philips as the most important part of your life. Anything less and it is frowned upon. There is no stability in leadership. Constant change and not always for the better. Too many hoops to jump through for field engineers doing their jobs.

They have a fantastic 401K plan. All other benefits middle of the road that all companies give out.
Poor management, or lack there of. Directionless for some managers, no enthusiasm, no enjoyment, no promotions (from a manager who stated early on they did NOT promote), no recognition, nothing. Collect a paycheck and go home. Oh yeah, if you get a CAPA, I was told I could be fired. WOW! I am incentivized to do a good job.6

great teams and commitment to success always open to trying new things have plenty of great data to work with to make important decisions
sometimes the team is slow to react due to the natural pace of business sometimes it was a challenge to fix reporting issues

- Benefits - Friendly work environment - Places for advancement/internal roles - Innovation - Team-oriented work - Meaningful work
- Poor management in some areas. - Solutions don’t come quick or easy, if at all. - Work has no direct flow or standard procedure, no structure - KPIs based on statistics associates don’t have regular access to - Cross-compatible software while being told we’d use one or the other for more than 2 years. - Current role came with no formal training or instruction - Role consistently displayed in mundane, negative light by supervisor in meetings or while in office - Consistently asked to bend the rules/policies even though in the name of customer satisfaction6

Remote work; great people; room to grow
Lots of changes, some rapidly without being able to adjust to the previous ones.
- 1.0Aug 10, 2023Data AnalystCurrent Employee, more than 1 yearAlpharetta, GA
Collegial Environment: The friendly atmosphere has consistently been a highlight. Generous Health Plan: Comprehensive, though costly. Work from Home Flexibility: Convenient but with restrictions.
Bureaucratic Structure: A significant impediment to creativity and efficiency. Compensation and Benefits: Uncompetitive pay, non-existent bonuses, and failure to match inflation. Flexible Vacation - A Misnomer: Less accommodating than it appears. Restrictions on Remote Work: Diminished flexibility due to rigid scheduling. Company Performance and Layoffs: As of 2023, Philips Healthcare has been struggling, resulting in layoffs. The senior leadership's handling of these layoffs has been uncompassionate. Overbearing DEI Program: The implementation of Philips' DEI program has been perceived as overbearing.5Philips Response5w
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It's clear that your Philips experience overall has not been positive. We regret to hear that the compensation and benefits provided aren't what you had hoped for, that you're missing a certain level of sympathy from senior management and that you'd like to see changes made when it comes to the implementation of DEI. We're constantly striving for improvement, not only as manufacturer but also as employer. Our management is also active here on Glassdoor and is closely monitoring all reviews: your points of advice are welcome and will be noted. Thank you again for looking back at the 2+ years you've been working for Philips in Alpharetta. Your experience is important to us. We wish you all the best moving forward.
