    Pros

    Upon arrival you understand that everything has been thought off in terms of making sure the employee feels at home and comfortable. A great work environement where everyone is very helpful and where management supports you and also trust that you will do the job to the best of your ability.
    Amazing location, amazing offices, great people and fantasit career opportunities.

    Cons

    With the legacy of being a traditional M&A growth orientated business, the company could do with some improvement in terms of systems and admin but having reached a certain business maturity, LG is currently working towards a more strategic alignement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Consolidates and communicates the Liberty Global Values.
    - GIve exposure to who's doind what within the company, job shadowing to understand the different priorities.
    - Accentuate external PR communications to drive organisational pride

    I have been working at Liberty Global full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    An international organisation, very dynamic, opportunities to grow and learn, pays well, makes efforts to retain staff. Nice work facilities. Growing position in market, unlikely to be out of business any time soon.

    Cons

    Sometimes seems a bit conservative. The need for quick decision making leads to some craziness. Politics can be bad but I guess no worse than other companies of a similar size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics please

    Pros

    It is the type of company, big enough to pursue any IT carrier opportunity you would like. Represents the headquarters of european operations. If you are good you will be noticed and compansated.

    Cons

    Could put more accent on people development, but it is a direction which is taken..and steps are done already toawards this goal. This in the light of comparing it with working in the IT consultancy industry which puts a higher focus on this topic.

    Pros

    LG provides competitive slaries and benefits, there are opportunities for training and leadership assignments. Work is interesting, the company expands its activities contuniously and there are lots of M&A activities. there are many events during the year where colleagues can come together and do fun things together. (summer and Christmas parties, new year's receptions etc.)

    Cons

    The company's increasing size makes communication between departments less efficient, there is space for potential improvement regarding people managemement, the work culture is a bit controlling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less controlling, more focus on people management and soft skills, improve communication channels.

    Pros

    Working with the latest technologies in one of the biggest scales possible in mainland Europe with a large group of technically skilled people.

    Cons

    The culture is good, the people are good the politics and rapidly shifting directions can drive you mad sometimes, but maybe this is normal in a company of that size.
