    Pros

    Great team which is well established and structured. Very good career support and strives to maintain attractiveness to employees. With the benefit of hindsight, they were a great employer and culture was better than average

    Cons

    Some leadership challenges and management turnover creates personality problems at a point.

    Pros

    Considered employee's balance working and home life. And very good team environment and providing opportunity to work on various project.

    Cons

    Company is trying to adopt the cutting edge technology and invent new software solutions on the industry but because of lack of knowledge in software development and professional experience from software architectures, they didn't commit to make a successful project.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have more proven software architectures to deliver successful software solution

    I worked at Philips full-time

    Pros

    There's a good culture, managers are encouraged to develop and help staff grow, people are treated with respect. Products are good, suffering typical problems associated with the industry, but they handle these situations with great care. Managers of all levels are approachable.

    Cons

    Local leadership is flawed, consistently poor results year after year but the same faces are there. They want to be customer focussed, but they really are not. Multiple poor performers will frustrate you if you are ambitious.

    Advice to Management

    A good company that is great in many international locations, they need to ask themselves how they can be great too. Which could be very confronting for senior staff that are just rooted there, waiting for retirement.

    I worked at Philips full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance if you enjoy not working and pretending or shuffling papers left and right.

    Cons

    Boring. Lacks culture. Lacks team building. Not strategy, clear structure. Just people running around pretending to be busy. Striving for average results. Leadership are self centred. There is no talent there and they will cut people and not give them a heads up or communicate with the rest of the business that it is happening. A shonky set of redundancies, based on popularity.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the management team in ANZ.
