    Pros

    -Superb company culture and environment
    -Colleagues are warm, welcoming, and knowledgeable
    -Management is generally supportive and supports mentor type relationships

    Cons

    -Department changes are made without requesting feedback from department employees
    -Services are outsourced, resulting in a better bottom line, but damage to customer satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Consult your employees on matters that affect their jobs and their livelihood before implementing system or department-wide changes. Focus on what will enhance the customer experience and their satisfaction, not what is cheaper or trendy (I.E. Outsourcing)

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

    Pros

    Competitive compensation
    Friendly co-workers
    Nice campus, many employees take walks

    Cons

    Constantly outsourcing and/or restructuring, interrupt business, lower work quality as a result

    Advice to Management

    Consider the valuable experience and knowledge of employees who lost their jobs to outsourcing or offshoring. Most of the restructuring efforts are based on cost, not quality. Do not focus only on cost, quality is just, if not more, important than cost.

    I worked at Philips full-time

    Pros

    Great leadership at their Netherlands offices, not so much, locally

    Cons

    Massive oversights in budgeting for the necessary resources to accomplish whats necessary to meet quality milestones. Engineers in SQA are faced with having to negotiate with the project teams to get the money they need to perform APQP, CPK, Gage and audits. No money was set aside for this and the work had to be done remotely. Money was available however for exotic European and costa rica trips for the manager/director and even trips home to work near the family on holidays. My performance was rated highly by my project team and I was very proud to deliver, despite having to beg for the funds to do the work. However, when I put in my 2 week notice, to told me to leave almost immediately, and with no pay. They also didn't finish my last expense report and it went 100+ days past due, causing me over 40 hours of personal time to negotiate with AmEx and my manager. Really poor showing all the way around and an incredibly disrespectful exit, again for someone rated highly by their work teams.

    Advice to Management

    When adding headcounts, assure the operating budgets are increased accordingly to support the work that needs to be performed. Beware of the message you are sending people by NOT honoring a 2 week notice, and most of all be accountable to close out the credit card accounts after you cut off access to the person most affected by your unwillingness to submit expense reports. This is the first time I've experienced anything like this, and my first post to Glass Door in over 30 years of employment.
