    I have been working at Philips full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first job out of college, and everyone I work with is kind and helpful in getting me acclimated to post-college work life. There are also several employee engagement-type events where we all get to know one another in a more casual context. I feel like people at this company are far more in sync and connected than other companies I've worked for. I know "company culture" is a buzzword/phrase, but this is the first company that has made me realize the impact of good company culture.

    Cons

    We are in the middle of a site transition, so it's very busy around here. Lots of new hires. Not necessarily a bad thing- everyone is excited about work! It just gets a little hectic at times. Honestly though, it is far more exciting than hectic so I don't really have any complaints.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of my coworkers have mentioned a high rate of boss/manager turnover. Some have had nearly 10 managers over the course of just a couple years. Perhaps some work could be done to minimize manager turnover. However this is likely due in part to the site transition, so maybe manager turnover will decrease once the move is complete. However I must mention that my experience with management thus far has been nothing but positive! Whoever does the hiring around here really knows how to find competent, kind employees.
