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

    Pros

    New kids are fun to work with. They don't question my authority and work long hours with pride.

    Cons

    Unlimited paid time off, although unlimited per co policy does not apply to us. In the supply chain area, PTO is limited to 2-6 weeks depending on one's service time. Why the descrepancy?
    Desk cleaning and inspection is mandatory. What does this really achieve and really cost?
    Employee survey answers are suggested by the directors to us so that the dept looks good and does not have to do serious deep dives.

    Advice to Management

    I've been reading the reviews here for several years and see a lot of comments that management reads the reviews. We haven't seen any kind of policy changes. Can you update us?
