Chaotic politics hinders progress

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Schiphol (Netherlands)

ProsGood opportunities, for competant people, to rise very quickly through the organisation.

Salaries aren't terrible.

A "safe haven" for contract staff, of all levels of ability

ConsMany technically brilliant people in managerial roles. (Which is not within their skill set)

General inexperience with the technology, mostly due to the silo driven mentality, partly due to buying entire solutions from vendors, rather than individual components, and partly due to reliance on contractors - who will of course come and go.

Operations teams fail to take ownership of the platforms.

Architecture teams fail to understand Operational requirements.

Architecture and Product teams fail to work together, to create products that are both desirable & deliverable.

Ridiculous timeline expectations makes projects impossible to deliver, due to clashes in vendor deliveries, and lab activities. (Timelines are dictated to the projects, based on nothing, rather than coming from the projects)

Salary is generally below average for atracting technical expertise to move country.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain or reallocate leaders who can not provide simple resource planning information.

Let the Project teams tell you the timelines, then look to squeeze by removing scope, rather than starting with a delivery date.

Pay the price to get some good quality, experienced, permanent staff in. (It'll pay itself back in timelines to deliver)

Use the aforementioned skilled staff to mentor new apprentices, carrying the company into the future.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A nightmare

    Manager (Former Employee) Schiphol (Netherlands)

    I worked at Liberty Global full-time for more than a year


    Pros: A few good people but they don't stay long in… Cons: - unprofessional work environment (familiarity, everyone dating each other, after party people come to work late etc.) - mess in every department, no one knows what… Advice to Senior Management: Hire people who actually know technology and how to manage people.
