    I worked at Philips full-time

    Pros

    The sales and technical people in my region were great to work with. They were very open to helping me learn and teaching me the ropes. I can't say enough good things about them.
    The compensation was fair, although the quotas were a bit inflated.

    Cons

    The company does a restructure about every 2 to 3 years. When that happens, instead of finding spots for people to transition to, they RIF dozens or more and then when the dust settles, start hiring or rehiring. I don't feel a lot of loyalty or security with Philips.

    Advice to Management

    Work FOR your employees. Incentivize and inspire them beyond their job requirements and AOP. If you stick your neck out for your employees, they'll stick their necks out for you.

    Pros

    Great company doing great things to make people's lives healthier and better. Great work/life balance. Some remote-working opportunities exist.

    Cons

    Might not offer top-tier compensation in terms of dollars, but their healthcare benefits are second to none.
