Worst Company Ever
Produc Designer (Former Employee) –  Langley, BC28 November 2017
Hands down the worst place I have ever worked in my entire career. If you are thinking of working there, do yourself a favor and just don't. It's an extremely toxic work environment. Behaviors/attributes that the working culture encourages/nurtures there include: antagonism, vindictiveness, divisiveness, and discord. Bullying and intimidation are also perfectly acceptable forms of behavior as well. Truth is not a virtue that is held in high regard. What makes it worse is that maanagement truly believes that a healthy team environment exists, when in fact the opposite is true. So nothing will ever be done to change the working environment there. If you absolutely must go work there, save/archive e-mails, take notes on conversations/meetings (i.e. dates, times, who was there, what was said), and otherwise be on high alert at all times. You will absolutely need the information that you recorded at some point down the road in the future. Trust me!

not a happy place
Demand Planning Manager (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON25 April 2017
Once Philips lighting was a great place to work. The only way you could get into Philips Lighting was if someone retired or past away, but in the past 2 years with all the management change the turn over is high, staff are not happy and common office conversations are looked down on. (only found in washrooms or outside the building) people (staff) stick to what and who they know. when you walk through the office you will only see heads down and people working. there is zero engagement and also with new staff.
In order to get ahead at Philips Lighting you must be willing to work long hours, and to continue your education including the six sigma courses.
You will also find unqualified managers which have impeded those who know/knew what they are doing.
Pros
there once was pro but no longer in the past 2 years
Cons
no private life
