    I worked at Philips full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and Benefits. Good hourly pay

    Cons

    No loyalty from management. I worked there 30 plus years and all they care about are the numbers. Also they dont trust thier employees. I never broke any rules but they swepted me out anyway. They never called my customers and asked how I was doing. Also if you dont score a 10 on a survey, your very bad.

    Advice to Management

    Butter cups.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Recent college grads bring to the table alternate views in ultrasound manufacturing.

    Technology transfer to sister site.

    Cons

    Sometimes I think the company cares more about stockholder EBITA than employees because of the end of quarter pushes and constant penny pinching..
    Too many pet projects. Eliminate these and you will save money and head count.

    Advice to Management

    Don't influence the yearly surveys by trying to interpret the questions to the employees. They can read and decide.
    Let me do my job without the Euro-style management directives which are often a burden to getting the real work done!
