    I have been working at Philips full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is my first job out of college, and everyone I work with is kind and helpful in getting me acclimated to post-college work life. There are also several employee engagement-type events where we all get to know one another in a more casual context. I feel like people at this company are far more in sync and connected than other companies I've worked for. I know "company culture" is a buzzword/phrase, but this is the...

    Cons

    We are in the middle of a site transition, so it's very busy around here. Lots of new hires. Not necessarily a bad thing- everyone is excited about work! It just gets a little hectic at times. Honestly though, it is far more exciting than hectic so I don't really have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of my coworkers have mentioned a high rate of boss/manager turnover. Some have had nearly 10 managers over the course of just a couple years. Perhaps some work could be done to minimize manager turnover. However this is likely due in part to the site transition, so maybe manager turnover will decrease once the move is complete. However I must mention that my experience with management thus far has been nothing but...

    I worked at Philips full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay and benefits; learning & development opportunities

    Cons

    No work life balance in the US as you find in EUR. Too much outsourcing - IT, CS, etc. takes it toll - sometimes is like a revolving door of vendors. In some areas, hard to find someone with ultimate ownership who is NOT an outsourced vendor.

    Advice to Management

    Outsource less.

    I worked at Philips full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most support guys are really accessible, lots of people with experience on the field and great tools for service. They give you company's car, phone and tools and some independence. You work with no more than 3 modalities.

    Cons

    Travels a lot, focus on metrics that doesn't show the reality, the CT equipments are hard to service and MR support is rude. Don't invest a lot on trainings and are really slow on everything. Hard to get a raise or promotion, specially if you are on the field.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the talents that you have, cut the burocracy and invest more on the field. Reavaluate the field load distribution and reduce travel.
