    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Philips is consistently on the cutting edge of Patient Monitoring development. Philips is the undisputed leader in the space and by default they get a seat at the table in any opportunity. I have seen may 'start ups' come and go and the idea that you have to be a 'small' company to innovate is simply not true. Philips has a culture that believes in and heavily invests in being the leader. That is why other players copy them.

    Cons

    Like all major companies there are plenty of things that can irritate an employee. With that said, many of the people I work with here have been employees for a decade or longer, even in high turnover jobs. This alone speaks volumes.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on the quarterly report metrics and more on the long term viability of the business, especially toward the end of the year.
