    Pros

    I've worked with Philips for over 10 years and have always been interested in working for this company. Philips has great products and surrounds themselves with great people.

    Cons

    There are none so far!

    Pros

    Great place to work. They do take care of the people and allow managers to do so. Half of the Andover headquarters has been updated to flexible workspaces which creates a very friendly and open work environment.

    Cons

    Conflicting targets between departments result in conflicting behaviors. Some office spaces are still stuck in the sixties and require updating.

    Advice to Management

    Secure synchronization of target setting between the various departments.

    Pros

    Great people, solid strategy, good flexibility.

    Cons

    terrible people development. Poor diversity.

    Advice to Management

    Give more visibility about development. Potential next jobs, salary range. You have tried to introduce a good potential evaluation tool with agility, but it still feels subjective and like you're at the mercy of your manager.
