Current Employee - Web Designer  in  Amsterdam (Netherlands)

Pros

Smart, international workforce. Working on problems that impact people. Great resources and access to whichever tools you need to do your job. Data-driven process helps inform and challenge you as to what the impact of design decisions is on the end user, and in turn the business.

You are genuinely empowered to make things better, both on the site and in yourself. Booking provides a lot of training opportunities: technical, communication, management and if you're interested in learning it, Dutch. Opportunities for professional and personal development are many, and if you're passionate and motivated you can move into different roles.

The environment is friendly and casual, in a beautiful building on a canal in the centre of Amsterdam.

Cons

Office politics, technical debt, internal communication, Dutch people.

People endlessly complaining about the lunch provided in the office, which for €2 is amazing. Airconditioning is freezing all year round. Noise that goes with working in an open-plan office.

Difference in company culture between departments — IT is amazing and relaxed, other departments sound like they're run in a very different (and sometimes not very nice) manner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Greater transparency on decision-making process.

    Pros

    Good exposures, training.

    Good for fresh graduates.

    Cons

    Management doesn't look at your individual performance but only look at how well you pacify the bosses.

    Dutch First, Europeans second and Asians third. Typical Foreign MNC culture.

    Pay structure is average. But no 13th month bonus and only quarterly incentives which is below Par.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rate people according to their performance and not the way the keep you happy personally..

    Former Employee - Account Manager  in  Moscow (Russia)

    Pros

    The Company itself is good, international atmosphere, very helpful trainings, ability to develop sales and communication skills.

    Cons

    The atmosphere in Moscow office is very unhealthy due to the Russian management: intrigues, gossips, negative attitude to the 'non-friends'. You should avoid working there, otherwise, you risk to destroy your career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the Russian managers.
