Great Company
Quotations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Brockville, ON1 November 2018
Formally Philips Lighting. Busy in a good way great people. Dedicated to make things easy for your job but can be difficult at times to navigate the big company structure.
Salary and benefits are great. Flexible with personal and family life.
Can be slow to keep up with competition and market demands.
Not a lot of opportunity to advance customers and be miserable at times
Pros
Good persks and benifits
Cons
Long hours lots of things to do

Good people, good place to work, too many layoff - every year
Warehouse Person (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON12 June 2018
People are ok to work with for the most part. Clean safe environment. Supervisors and management do ample training and onsite courses every year for safety procedures and processes within the warehouse. This job pays pretty well. The benefits are ok. Mostly 80% coverage. My biggest complaint is yearly lay-offs for 6-8 months of the year.
Pros
Clean safe environment; Great pay, so-so benefits
Cons
lay offs

Poor management and pay in a good atmosphere
MANUFACTURING ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  Langley, BC24 March 2018
While the coworkers, work, and atmosphere is great, there is little room for advancement and the pay is well below average; management is notoriously cheap. Expect 2.3% raises every year with 3% bonuses.

The work is good and they take best practices and lean manufacturing very seriously.

Unfortunately management often makes poor decisions that reverse decisions that were made two years previous, resulting in unnecessary rework. Management loves to change project scope last minute or even when the project is done, which is extremely frustrating. Management also seems to only care about what corporate thinks, and focuses all their goals on looking good to corporate, sometimes at the expense of production.

Good benefits though.
Pros
Relaxed atmosphere, decent work-home balance, great people
Cons
Low pay, poor management

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
