Electronic Technician II (Former Employee), Bath, NYOctober 25, 2014
Pros: good work
Cons: jobs moving out of country
I enjoyed the work I did at Philips Lighting. There were too many management with too little to do and earning too much money for results produced. Investing good amounts of money to good producing people will produce upward trending results.

Great name in your resume but very politically charged
Consultant (Former Employee), Andover, MAOctober 22, 2014
I never worked for Philips as an employee but twice as a contractor, and from my experience the company is not supportive of the contractors. They are there to be blamed for anything that has gone wrong before you are brought in!

Sonicare: Lots of potential, but Sr. Mgt and people don't get it..
Product Manager (Former Employee), Bothell, WAOctober 11, 2014
Pros: great opportunity to work on global programs and learn several lines of business
Cons: horrendous employee morale, culture reinforces bad / negative behaviors, lack of accountability and ownership by most employees, lack of aligned strategic vision by sr mgt, lack of leading by example by sr. leadership team
On an individual basis, work related to the job can be very rewarding. The big issue is that the overall business is very disjointed when it comes to thinking and acting strategically. Their is very little alignment between groups and unless you drive things yourself, you cannot expect your counterparts to come through. Many only know what they know – more... and want to "stay in their lane." The ability to think holistically and strategically is not possessed by many there. In fact, it feels more like a factory than an innovation hub or center of excellence, and many like it that way.

In the end, it's a great opportunity to work within a global framework - whether with internal stakeholders or suppliers, and you have the opportunity to really learn a lot about how to run a business. In some sense, with the organization being such a small unit, you almost get to operate as a "mini GM" and make important decisions that have a big impact to the product and/or program.

A disappointing part of the job entails obtaining buy-in from all of the stakeholders within the organization. Many have their own agenda and often times it feels like herding cats to get things done. Unless you're truly assertive things will not get done, and you should expect to be disappointed even when you feel/think there's alignment on a game plan. The truly hard part of the job is Sr. Mgt's role in the dysfunctionality that presently exists - many establish standards and expectations that they themselves don't adhere to. Furthermore, a vast majority of the leadership team lack the true strategic vision and ability to genuinely rally the troops. This may be in part to them not leading by example.

In general, over the past several years the retention rate of employees has been horrendous and I attribute this to the bad employee morale coupled with Sr. Mgt's tactics of employing European values on an American workforce. – less
