    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 Management

    - 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

  2. Awesome company to work for!

    Pros

    Een internationale organisatie, erg dynamisch, kansen om te groeien en te leren, betaalt goed, doet moeite om personeel te behouden. Fijne faciliteiten om te werken. Groeiende positie in de markt, onwaarschijnlijk dat ze spoedig failliet gaan.

    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

    Lijkt soms een beetje conservatief. De behoefte aan het nemen van snelle beslissingen leidt tot enige gekte. Het beleid kan slecht zijn, maar ik denk niet slechter dan andere bedrijven van vergelijkbare omvang.

    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 Management

    Graag minder vriendjespolitiek.

    Less politics please

    Pros

    Het is het type bedrijf dat groot genoeg is om elke IT carrière achterna te jagen die je wilt. Vertegenwoordigt het hoofdkwartier van Europese operaties. Als je goed bent, wordt dat waargenomen en beloond.

    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

    Zou meer het accent kunnen leggen op personeelsontwikkelingen, maar het is een weg die is ingeslagen.. en stappen zijn al genomen in deze richting. Dit met het oog op de vergelijking met werken
    in de IT consultancy tak, waar meer aandacht voor dit onderwerp is.

    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.
