Suggestions for improvement
- I'm not smart enough to think I could improve on the multi-billion dollar success that is Philips. I think they have a pretty good idea what they're doing, and they keep the employees front and center in their mindset along with the customers. They keep ahead of safety, for their customers and their employees, they think of the future of their employees and encourage growth through education, as well as offer company matched retirement options, and excellent health and wellness benefits that include reduced (and sometimes free) gym memberships. They encourage employees to go out into the community and volunteer, and to work with charities, and give them time off from work to do this. They're a terrific company to work for, and the people I worked with, and worked for, were some of the most wonderful people I've ever known. I wouldn't change a thing.
I like about the employer
Philips encourages learning, personal and professional improvement and growth for every employee, no matter what type of job they have, and gives every employee the opportunity to grow into bigger and better jobs. They provide free education through their own web-based education system, as well as a large variety of educational classes and seminars provided all over their network throughout the world in classrooms and in web-based classes that educate employees in hundreds of areas. Some classes are free, others are company-sponsored (have a cost but the employee's department pays the bill). In addition, the company also pays for a large percentage for college for an employee as long as they maintain a B average or better, and the employee doesn't have to be taking courses related to their job to get the tuition reimbursement.
