    I worked at Rabobank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good work-life balance, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Due to the fact that it is a Dutch company operating globally, the influence of the Dutch is inescapable. Sometimes that's good. Sometimes, particularly in recent years as the Dutch economy has been on the skids, that can be bad - bad for morale, bad for business. Also, Dutch employees are given significantly more opportunities for career growth than are local employees. Someone has said it before. It helps if your name is Hans or Geert or Henk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more of your international (i.e., non-Dutch) employees the same kinds of international career opportunities that you give to your employees from The Netherlands.

    Data Warehouse Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roseville, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Roseville, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Rabobank in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with the CIO of Rabobank about the job over the phone. Interview discuss how to build a successful data warehouse. The office was impressive, new building furniture. Nice location. Work culture appeared to be "cautious" as many people appear nervous about telling the truth.

    Interview was supposed to last one hour but the CIO could leave his iPhone long enough to discuss an one topic. much less evaluate skills. Our meeting was interrupted by others by several crisis.

    Interview Questions
    • How would you talk "up" to Senior Management   View Answer
    • Can you build us a data warehouse yourself, with no help, no staff?   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    The CIO was rude and emotional. His attitude towards others was poor. Not the type of person I would report to. He talked more about his career than mine. He wanted a manager, but really he wanted a data warehouse developer/analyst/business intelligence/data modeler/architect. The pay was poor for the type of job. My assumption is that Rabobank believed that they could pick up cheap talent. Unfortunately every one they place in this position either is demoted or resigns.
