    Pros

    Great subsidized facilities (restaurant, gym) at the European HQ, dynamic environment, plenty of smart human beings with energy, drive and vision.

    Cons

    The company lacks real customer focus - they've done wonders at the front-end call centers, etc. in recent years, and the product development teams do their best, but the company's strategy is not really about its products. Senior management is 99% focused on the financial markets, managing debt, and staying a whisker ahead - no real customer or innovation focus. The actual culture and practices are mostly conservative and wasteful. There are signs of this changing in some parts of the organization, but in my experience most employees are highly cynical about implementing new ideas and genuine change.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on building a Lean organization, that is geared towards learning and continuous improvement. Get close to the shop floor, open your minds and hearts to what's really going on, and build relationships of trust with your staff.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, great campus in Amsterdam, very nice restaurant, free gym, lots of international professional and smart people around. Very dynamic and fast moving industry. Get the job done mentality.

    Cons

    Very political and complex structured company. Personal growth really depending on who you work for. in-consequent management behaviour, again strongly depending who you work for. Increasing amount of policies making it hard to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Less 'old boys' please


  7. Come work here the people are good, the product is good and the management know what they are doing.

    Cons

    De prioriteiten van verschillende afdelingen komen vaak met elkaar in conflict. Het management is vaak te veeleisend wat voor stress zorgt.

    Conflicts of priorities between departments. Very stressful exigences of the management.
