    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I work with a great group of people in Carlsbad, CA.

    Cons

    Pay raises as small and promotions slow. Lateral move opportunities are also not abundant.

    Advice to Management

    We have had some turn-over in managers, and the new executive team is doing a great job.

    It's great to see an employee who has been with us for 8+ years is still having a positive experience! Thank you!

    I have been working at Philips full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    HR has been extremely polite and informative throughout the interview process, job offer, onboarding, and now training. I've heard horror stories about large companies taking months to hire new employees. That was not the case with Philips. My first day was just 5 weeks after my interview. HR's good communication made it a very smooth and stress-free process.

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative. I'll simply note, its a very big company and its rapidly getting bigger --- so it becomes a challenge learning the organizational structure with the constant employee (upward) rotation and growth.

    I have been working at Philips full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Management is really knowledgeable about the company and their role. Love that they bleed blue!
    - Awesome Benefits (Fave: Company matches first 4% at 150% and the following 2% at 50%)
    - Diverse Culture
    - Easy Role
    - Smooth HR on boarding experience. Maintained my interest and kept me engaged throughout the entire process up through my hiring date.
    - Really learn a lot during your 4-6 weeks of training. Soak it all in.
    - Able to disconnect from work once you leave. No work from home.
    - Global Company
    - Flexible when it comes to outside life events.
    - Free Parking

    Cons

    - Extremely high cost of living in Nashville. Housing is ridiculous. (New to the area and do not see a future here if raises are not yearly. Didn't receive any help with trying to relocate or moving advise.)
    - Commute time sucks.
    - Role is not challenging enough (very tedious).
    - Do not see career growth in this role.
    - Culture does seem a little on the slow side.
    - Have to use all vacation time before the end of the year. Does not rollover. Will seem hard to do when you only have 2-3 people in your department with such a high workload.
    - Don't make enough to be able to buy stock and invest in 401K.

    Advice to Management

    The office certainly NEED color. Looking at white ceilings, white desks, and white walls all day can be draining. Promote more health and wellness around the office. Management/HR should be more transparent about career growth path. If you have people relocating to the area, provide them with tips on apartment/house hunting. Trying to find a place here was so stressful and high for the salary I'm paid.

    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Supportive culture, amazing benefits, well-defined role and mission

    I’ve been with the company for almost a year now and I do not see myself leaving. I’m part of an amazing, professional team and I have one of the most supportive leaders that I’ve ever had.

    Cons

    New to the area so there are some growing pains. A few things weren’t thought through very well but that’s improving. The downtown location is a little annoying but they’ve worked very hard to compensate for the challenges.

    Pros

    Ability to be flexible if required with personal / family matters.

    Cons

    Inclined to "judge a book by its cover" or outer validations and not by its intrinsic value and content.

    Advice to Management

    Disregard for legacy talents is tantamount to disregard for your financial investments.
