Reviews for Philips Electronics

Reviews - What employees say

3.96 Employees say

Teamwork

If you're on Product support, prepare to be screamed at by reps that have no idea how the software or products actually work DAILY.

Freedom to work independently

Team environment. Opportunity to work from home

Internal Communication

No easy way to share documents needed, it was just assumed you had them or knew where to find them.

Gender Equality

Was one of three women on my team.

Career Development

Didn't seem to be much room for growth

Overall compensation for your work

Bad deal with bad temp company. Look for better ones or try to negotiate. I didn't even have the opportunity, had to negotiate later at 6 months.

Office / Work Environment

Couldn't personalize things

Work-Life Balance

Weekly shift schedules.

Job Security

Slow turn around to full time. Year to 18 months in most cases and it seems to go off seniority so good luck.

Challenging Work

Very repetitive, not that hard once you got the hang of it

Suggestions for improvement

  • Make better deals with better temp companies if you want to keep anyone around. Give the reps actual punishments for the way they speak to product support, it's deplorable and a very poor representation of the company. My interactions with reps now, a rep would be fired for speaking to anyone else in the company the way we were treated.

What I like about the company

I liked my team.

What I dislike about the company

Sales reps. Honestly, give them more training or tell them to shut their mouths while ANYONE on the phone is solving their issue.

Suggestions for improvement

  • We have a great team and a very interesting and challenging project. We do need to make some improvements to our overall program processes. I have shared a list of ideas with Program and Architecture leadership members and these improvements are identified and are to be implemented. It would be very good for the success of the program if we could expedite the implementation of these program process enhancements.

What I like about the company

Philips is an excellent company. Philips is a tremendous global brand. People are treated very well here. As a contractor, I am treated equally with Philips full time employees. The work is very innovative and interesting. I am proud to be helping to produce such an important software product that supports our medical devices globally and does a tremendous amount of good for people all over the world.

What I dislike about the company

It is not a Philips issue but the consulting firm that I work through does not provide me with any paid time off. Holidays and vacation days I have to take unpaid.
