Great learning experience. Awful management
Philips is a great company to work for. I had a great learning experience working there, as I could learn and implement a lot of things from others in the team. But, the management isn't helpful at all. It's more of a burden than a help.
There were instances, where an R&D management, turned down on a completed application just by saying that they - more... don't have enough examples in the market to follow this pattern. So, they exhibited more of a follower attitude than a leader attitude. In my opinion, they can't call themselves R&D, if they aren't ready to try and take the risk.
Otherwise, it's ... - less
ProsGreat work experience, Good learning
ConsAwful management, bad compensation, no place for innovation, no place for encouragement either
