    Pros

    Fair pay for honest days work. Ample opportunities to learn. You really are helping people with the products developed here.

    Cons

    Challenging to progress if you aren't working your network. You'll see people spend years getting nothing done. Old guard clashing with new guard, slowing improvements and causing programs to stall or be half done as funding is pulled.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with your strategies and give them resourcing to succeed.

    I worked at Philips full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people working at Technician and Assembly level. They are under appreciated.

    Cons

    They have a Review System where employees are reviewed on a bell curve. HR and Upper Management force Supervisors to rate average, good employees as BAD Employees. You have to to have 4 or 5 employees end up in the "needs improvement" category, even if they are perfectly fine employees. It is demoralizing for everyone.
    Company is owned by the Netherlands. So they have these crazy yearly surveys where employees rate Supervisors and Managers. It can get pretty weird. Employee grudges from bad reviews are dealt through the surveys. Supervisors routinely are pushed out when they get a bad survey review from an unhappy employees who the company forces you to give a "needs improvement" review. The entire system is very devious.

    Advice to Management

    Change your review system. You don't need to manufacture a bell curve, that includes making up bad reviews on good employees, just so you can give zero $$ raises.

    Pros

    Good starting pay. Good health, vision and dental insurance. Fun work environment. You get 3 to 4 days a week off.

    Cons

    You are working in hot conditions depending on what department you are in. There is a lot of broken glass.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to hourly employees more.
