The Most compassionate and caring job i have ever had
Personal Response Associate (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – October 26, 2016
I worked at lifeline not only for my paycheck ,but the rewards of helping the subscribers . There arn't alot of people that handle calls when the sub presses that phb for depression ,lonliness,anxiety,suicidal,robberies and confusion and just to talk and the typical I've fallen and can't get up was frequent,to hear a friendly voice that they may recognize. My coworkers had compassion,kindness and were monitored on a frequent basis. We left our life behind to help people.Snow,rain,sleet we were there.
Management, bonus, free meals and frequent treats
that the company, is leaving Framingham or significantly downsizing, at the Framingham location saddens me
Senior Consumer Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA – October 23, 2016
Overall, the worst experience of my professional career. The beaurocracy is beyond compare, with zero important decisions delegated beyond the second level CEO. That's right, there are three CEOs reporting vertically into one another, and even the Vice Presidents don't own their P&L. There's a complete mismatch between accountability and authority, annual performance goals aren't finalized until Q4 or after the year closes, and the subjective nature of the reviews allow politics and relationships to vastly overshadow any objective measurement of success. All metrics are kept at a total division level, so free riders can rejoice with a good bonus while hard workers are exploited and asked to continue to do more for the team.
Good word life balance and easy to coast by if you're lazy and want an easy paycheck.
Rewards not commensurate with contribution, Americans aren't promoted, career progression promises aren't delivered, internet doesn't work, incentives misaligned, Antiquated financial metrics, depressing environment

a fantastic company but specific managers make it "less than appealing". I would highly recommend you work there, but you need to be able to tolerate managers (some) who only care about their paychecks and not about you.
Foster City location - Great people to work with - No advancement opportunity
Customer Service Representative (Temp) (Former Employee) – Foster City, CA – October 10, 2016
Temp: Customer Service for 2 years (original assignment was 6-8 mths). Company had no intention of hiring as direct. Job was outsourced to India. Co-workers were very nice, fun, and helpful. There was no hard part of the job, easiest I have ever done. Not enough challenges. Too many managers, not always available when needed.
Temporary employee, No Pros, No benefits or perks that a direct hire would get.
Problems with phone systems. Too many managers, Went through four managers that were in charge of the temporary employees were unprofessional, Mgrs not always around when needed, Mgrs were sometimes rude (only one good manager that quit).
Materials Handler 3 (Current Employee) – Aurora, IL – October 10, 2016
a day at work is usually the same depending on what department I am working in stock room shipping or receiving. mainly stockroom for now between me and 5 other workers we all have different responsibility. the hardest part is when I receiving orders at the last minute that has to be pulled from stock and transacted and delivered to production area before the close of the day management is good especially if you have a problem very is to talk to. most enjoyable part of the job is employee discounts .what I learned fire safety spill control, hazardous labels of material and how to store them

Difficult work environment with poor management
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – September 13, 2016
I found Philips a very difficult place to work. I was new to the team and no training was provided. I had to learn my job by trial and error. When I went to management with questions, they had no answer. Had to work on holidays.
