For one of the biggest companies in the world, you would expect Philips to be run with enthusiasm, integrity and precision.From my experience being based at the Chichester office, none of this rings true. The environment is uninspiring, with a cliquey culture and un-dynamic colleagues. People were negative daily, with even managers unable to see positives and motivate their team.Pay was ok, nice benefit system - no good if you don't want to come to work though. Good when out and about at customers, yet management make this more stressful and confusing than it needs to be - just let people get on with it and trust you have someone capable to do the job (micro-managing R Us)
Pros
Good pay, benefits
Cons
Boring, uninspiring, office environment

I worked for a agency in the warehouse for 2 and a half years .yes I wasn't employed by Philips as such but worked hard for the company with no rewards..I wanted to become permanent but every time I asked they said no..I missed out on 2 company bonuses as I was agency.They made sure you knew your place as an agency worker..when I left they didn't even thank for or ask me to stay..says it all..
Pros
Good pay on agency
Cons
No respect

Worked here for 18 months and have had 2 restructures since joining. Too many role changes on key positions means you just begin to get to know colleagues who are part of the support roles (marketing/trade shopper/ product management etc) and before you know it, they are moved on to a different role and you have to get to know their replacement all over again. Most of the time the new person coming to fill the vacant role has little or no experience. This is one of the most striking factors about the company. Most of the staff have either worked for the company for 10/15 years++ or just stay for 1 or 2 years (or less in may cases) and then move on. This means there can be a lack of visible experience across different functions and the inexperience can lead to mistakes and poor management of the business. Unclear strategies and overly-complicated processes make the job very laborious.
Pros
Pay and conditions
Cons
No career advancement opportunities / Inexperienced management/ No clear strategy or direction

Worked too many hours to make money a decent wage . If did not work lots of hours you got behind in your work due to bad management. Too many management with silly rules and there vetting company they use are no very good at the screening process.

Great learning opportunity across all of the Philips companies both UK and international. Some heavy Dutch influence on regional offices and promotion opportunities limited unless you are prepared to move to the NL.

Good workplace culture, always opportunities to develop and learn other parts of the business. Usual benefits as expected from large company. Good 'customer first' ethic, let down by aging systems

Previous managers were outstanding and I was given many opportunities to increase my skills. Hence the long time at the organisation. An employee can only increase their skills if they have a manager willing to give them the chance.

Philips is a good place to work if you have kids due to the agile and flexibility to work from home. The company is rather flat so progression is not as easy as jumps between roles are rather substantial.
Pros
Agile
Cons
Flat
