    Pros

    very relaxed atmosphere in the Netherlands office, flexible working time, good interpersonal relationship, easy to communication, leader position in the industry, nice working environment (countryside)

    Cons

    commuting takes some time since the location is not in a city, in one office the facilities are simple, and collaboration is not much since everyone is basically in charge of his/her own customers

    Pros

    It is my opinion that you have the ability to pursue many different avenues or career opportunities within the company.

    Cons

    Many other companies share this issue, but it is difficult to work across departments and still maintain the integrity of the project. With so many people working for the company and so many different opinions of a topic, it's often hard to keep ideas afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love to hear more about the big picture decisions that are being made: where these ideas come from and how we vote on their implementation.

    Pros

    They have a good benefit program and it is a family own company, other that nothing in particular. nothing more

    Cons

    Ball will work you to death and expect a lot from you within an unreasonable amount of time. Need to be more focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management needs to be better educated in the new technology area and stop thinking old school.need to be more focus.
    Anna Ball is doing a great job in the way she wants to go. The problem is too many people are not listening to what she is saying.
