    I have been working at Philips Electronics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Office is in a nice location when it's sunny
    If you are a HK local, this place may be better for you.

    Cons

    There is a high turn over, and recently many of the European colleagues have left the company.
    HR is very poor, and in most cases are very unhelpful.
    Team culture is quite low, especially if you do not speak Cantonese, it can take a very long time for people to work well with you.
    It is very hard to progress in your career once you are placed in a "grade" so make sure you feel you are going into a position that fits (with a bit of a stretch) for you to keep your job interesting and to grow.

    I worked at Philips Electronics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    international community, diverse backgrounds, transparent salary scales visible to everyone. good employee protection thanks to national regulation rather than company policy.

    Cons

    massive red tape and inadequate functioning of basic support services such as IT and HR. unresponsiveness to emails, endless meetings but hardly a team spirit, everyone tries to make sure they get home by 5. bullying is openly tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    needs to shift focus from stroking their own egos to maximising efficiency and understanding the value and motivational effect on employees of an efficiently run company.
