    Task Oriented Company (Not people oriented at all)

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe sector is interesting (at least at the beginning)
    Nice working environment /offices and building
    Salaries and colleagues are ok

    ConsLack of employee autonomy and creativity, skills and studies aren't appreciated which can bring the company culture down.
    No innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnergize your employees (not only high level managers) at all branch offices and make them feel appreciated.

    A good company that has difficulties moving forward

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    Pros- Most of the colleagues were the nicest people I have ever met.
    - Work/life balance is great
    - Many social events

    Cons- The company has difficulties in moving forward with innovation. It basically stands still waiting for the market to grow (competitors do the same)
    - Top management is a big CON!

    Advice to Senior Managementfocus on real innovation, not just reports and PPTs that have the word in it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Atradius Collections has no respect for employees

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    ProsSalary ok, management leaves at 5pm and so can you

    ConsEmployees aren't respected, they are a cost factor. Top collections management has an inner circle of friends who get the promotions and bonuses, the rest is left out and played against each other. Many bad cases of people being kicked out, lots of dirt being thrown, fluctuation is very high because people can't stand the horrible work atmosphere and that there isn't any progress to the business. Many people don't even last a year. On top of that there is no leadership and no strategy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAtradius Collections management should focus on growing their business instead of making work a living hell for staff. And management at Credit Insurance should start taking notice what is happening at Collections and start cleaning up.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not a people orientated company

    Commercial (Current Employee)
    Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    ProsSalaries are ok.
    No stress work environment.

    ConsManagement often very condescending towards employees, take pleasure in creating unrest, no career paths. If you want to grow, go somewhere else! Communication internally poor, hired/fired employees often not officially communicated. Poor leadership and no vision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you treat your employees with disrespect, you will also earn disrespect.
    Invest in building a strategy and stop shooting from the hip.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Bureaucratic without a clear corporate strategy - inwardly adrift

    (Current Employee)

    Pros- Stable
    - Interesting industry
    - Well paid
    - Good perks
    - Multicultural staff
    - Nice colleagues on a personal level

    Cons- Inefficient governance process
    - Lack of control over internal process: everything has to be done via committee
    - Bureaucratic, lack of accountability
    - Lack of transparency
    - Lack of ability to change and evolve
    - Lack of upward mobility and career prospects

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to a foster dynamic workplace where people are empowered and accountable.
    Bring in some experienced executives with a proven track record in achieving change.
    Look to attract them from different industries - IT, Marketing etc. - preferably from US, or with experience of working in US, where bureaucracy is a less desirable working characteristic.
    Bring in a COO/CTO role with decision making power and control over change projects.
    Bring in a new CEO from outside the organisation, or the parent organisation, one who can lead with presence, authority and vision, who is not interested in consolidating and controlling everything except the direction in which the company is going.
    Diminish the strength of your IT department in controlling project budgets and empower your business units to take both ownership and the lead in progressing and growing the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I learnt a lot thanks to the training given.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe country manager was understanding towards women with children and was supportive of the need of work-life.

    ConsAs it was a small set-up, there was no room for career advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSalaries and bonuses should be moderated across the different departments.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
