Here’s what current and former employees have to say on Glassdoor:
“Pros: Friendly environment; good compensation and benefits. Cons: Less exposure to training; human resources are not sufficient for a successful team.” —Former clinical application specialist
“Pros: Competitive compensation; friendly co-workers; nice campus; many employees take walks. Cons: Constantly outsourcing and/or restructuring interrupts business resulting in lower work quality.” —Current employee
“Pros: Philips is an enigmatic organization; lots of exciting challenges, big visions, great people and above-average leadership; unafraid to reinvent itself and adapt to the ever-changing market landscape. Cons: Continuous change makes for allot of chaos and uncertainty at times; focused on short-term financial goals and inorganic growth that investments in people and resources are not always a priority; work-life balance is subpar; if Philips were a person, it would probably be diagnosed as passive-aggressive.” —Former employee
“Pros: World-class company mission; genuinely seeking to improve; sometimes fascinating work; a lot of great talent and some really good people; what you do can make a major impact on improving lives. Cons: Underwhelming compensation; corporate changes disjointed and often incomplete; top-heavy management structure (more planners than doers); nearly non-existent growth path for many.” —Current employee
“Pros: Progressive company with many benefits; worldwide company that continues to grow. Cons: Finance and management issues; employee turnover.” —Current employee
