Question patient monitoring leadership, political unrest
Account Manager (Current Employee) – USA – March 9, 2017
Market share leader however customers are not happy, they are financially tied to Philips as their vendor. Leadership is focused on Diagnostic Imaging and so their attention is on this group only. Monitoring suffers because of this. Too much unrest and caught in between old and new styles of selling. Weak leadership. Relative job security if you keep your head down and go with the flow, not a good choice for someone looking to influence or change the game as Philips is too big to adapt and change quickly. Decreasing work/life balance although they will tell you they are employee focused. Always has been confusing as they are a health and well being company. Local CEO is not long term for the role, global CEO is well respected.
market leader, relative stability
harder to make money and less of a work life balance than 5+ years ago, weak and overweight in the mid level management arena
Thanks for taking the time to write such an elaborate review. Seeing that you've been working alongside with us for quite some time you have of course seen the company change.
We indeed try to be as employee focused as we can possibly be. We do recommend talking to your managing personnel in regards to some of the points that you make. Perhaps you do have some ideas to improve certain situations, it's always a good idea to share these.

Great benefits, mismanaged company
Account Manager (Current Employee) – USA – March 7, 2017
Great people you enjoy working with. Down to earth & willing to help. Company is mismanaged though. Leadership not held accountable. Heavy bureaucracy and slow to respond to shifts in the market. Not willing to see weaknesses & correct to make the company stronger. Great benefits with strong 401(k) match, good insurance, start with 3 wks vacation.
We are always learning and improving and our teams also come across our reviews, so the feedback will be taken into account.
It's very nice to hear that you've been a part of this great work culture that is present in your office. If we work together closely and learn from each other, innovation is within our reach even further.

Excellent company to work for.
Multi National Account Manager (Former Employee) – Amsterdam – March 23, 2016
My time spent at Philips was a great work and life experience. I was able to travel to 5 different countries internationally.
The management teams from the USA and Holland were fantastic and the work environment was the absolute best.
Great technology company with a very good management team.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – United States – February 24, 2016
Market leading products! Overall compensation is high (avg $175k). Company continues to innovate and believes they are far beyond any competition. Also believe hundreds of people are lining up to work for them so be sure you perform because you're on a 1-yr contract every year.
National Accounts Manager (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – September 8, 2015
Philips CL is a great place to get a start in the CPG industry. The sales positions are good as you get to work with large retailers and sell top quality products. It is hard to get promoted so most people in marketing leave after a few years. They tend to promote from Europe,
Sales, Account Management (Various Titles) (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – March 3, 2015
As part of the Sales Service & Excellence team, our team focuses on providing superior customer service, sales and account management. We operate as two regional teams headed by two experienced and professional managers, who strive to lead a spirited, motivated and effective team. Each day, we celebrate each other's successes and provide support and encouragement when there may be a challenging situation or problem resolution. The hardest part of the job is touching the number of internal and external customers as you would wish each day and the most enjoyable part of the job is working with our customers to achieve their goals and exceed their expectations. Our customers are vocal, direct and honest with both positive and negative feedback. It is very easy to know how we are performing! PHILIPS enjoys excellent relationships with their customers and despite being a large global company, there is a sense of teamwork and collaboration not only internally but also with our customers.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – USA – September 2, 2014
Philips was once a great place to work. Great team mentality, good work/family balance, decent pay, lots of communication from management, etc. Unfortunately that is no longer the case. Now it is every man or woman for themselves, horrible work/family balance and no communication. The upper management has threatened the sales people and yelled at them on national conference calls that he is going to clean house if they don't shape up. The thing is it's not the sales people that are the problem but the upper managements decisions to get rid of direct sales and go with agents (over 200 people lost their jobs last December, two weeks before Christmas) and now a new round of layoffs are occurring. Morale is at an all time low. Everyone is scared they will be let go next. If your thinking of working for Philips my advice is run.
Account Development Manager (Former Employee) – Utah, Idaho, Nevada, – February 28, 2014
Enjoyed working at Philips. They are a great company. Like any large organization when they decide to eliminate multiple disciplines it occurs for the betterment of the organization and the stock holders.
Unfortunately many individuals lost their positions.
I believe in their product's and continue to use many and recommend as well.
