    I worked at Philips full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can be relaxed work place
    Work-life balance
    Average salary

    Cons

    Lack of quality in the team , they don't do any unit tests or functional testing, encouraging stitching , and hacking to claim features and meet deadlines.

    Chaotic team planning or during stand up .
    Use a legacy technology stacks (like ten years old)
    Lack of diversity , most of the team is from India

    If you are a software engineer looking for a quality & exciting place then look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire talented software engineers, and experienced managers, you have a good idea for health-care software , but really poor implementation (design, coding, testing) that lacks quality with many defects , look for diversity, why all the current team is from India .

    Pros

    Career ladder and advancement is available. Management seems to value the opinions of employees and usually try to find solutions.

    Cons

    Do not compensate enough financially, expect clinicals to perform sales roles without paying them to do that job. Also, working 12 hr days are the norm.

    I have been working at Philips full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some good products but they are overshadowed by the companies inability to execute, deliver, commercialize the tech. CV and patient monitoring are strong. The diagnostic imaging space is a train wreck with no end in sight.

    Cons

    Everything. The pay is way behind the industry, the service organization is all powerful yet the are not incentivized on customer sat, so the NPS scores are the worst in their space. Half the products can't ship. Parts are hard to find for new systems. It's a mess.

    No accountability, Senior NA leadership is a joke with no clue. Many of the best sales leaders just left in protest. The company continues to lose in every market they play in and yet no one is fired. No one let go. Little to no fresh blood. Major FDA issues have added to a misguided and poorly executed org change management program.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves, hire outside talent who knows how to run a business. Break down silos, change incentive plans in order to drive behavior. Get a back bone. Accept responsibility for ruining the diagnostic imaging business and quit blaming the field. Field sales didn't re-org the company into oblivion or did they fail to document factory procedures and materials sourcing to a point the FDA shuts you down.

    I worked at Philips full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are fair and a flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Too political and too much in-fighting. I've seen a lot of unqualified people get promoted; and also some very qualified people get passed over in favor of hiring from outside.

    Advice to Management

    Start managing your managers. If you have a toxic people take care of the problem as it is a killer for moral.

    Good atmosphere and great, smart people. Pockets of innovation.

    Cons

    Some areas/products stagnant. Company moves slowly, not always in touch with industry trends. Culture allows for slow growth. Just look at stock price.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious and make some difficult decisions, and dump or completely change the product lines that aren't working or don't have a bright future. Invest in understanding and changing culture.
