Applying to Philips means giving yourself the opportunity to work in a dynamic, international, innovative environment. Philips is a truly global place to be. Each country and culture is different, and so are the challenges you will encounter there. Being based across the world, we can honestly say “the sun never sets.” For instance, we often work in virtual teams across different time zones, or combine our expertise by making use of different shift patterns.Our collaboration tools include web-based meeting software, mechanical CAD data sharing, e-mail, video and teleconferencing, as well as travel. Just one example is of teams in Healthcare in the US that work with teams in India, India then being the “second shift” of the day. Below are some descriptions of the activities and lifestyle of our teams across the world.
