    Pros

    Very dynamic work environment with a team spirit

    Pay scale is very related to performances, hence leading monthly firing sessions

    bureaucratic, no career advancement, mgmt has no vision

    Advice to Management

    Put out a opinion box to learn what employees really feel

    Listen more to the employees that are the eyes and ears of the customer.

    Pros

    Professional marketing department which lots of opportunities to make impact on Dutch society (budget, talent, ambition wise).

    Cons

    Organisation is not that agile, fast paced as you would hope in 2018. But KPN comes from far and the culture is focussed - and succesful - in changing the organisation to more digital/agile focussed. New CEO will help with that as well.

    I worked at KPN full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best company I have worked for that looked after its employees. Good pay, benefits, working hours, bonus, work events, nice colleagues etc

    Cons

    Technically speaking, this company is way behind with regard to skilled professionals within the company. Very big company so no responsibility on anyone as a result. No managers so no accountability on anyone either.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more skilled people in tech. No managers can only work in self organizing teams, of which I rarely saw any of

    Pros

    Freedom in choosing and creating your own projects.
    Flexible hours
    Great team

    Cons

    New or, changes to, infrastructure can take a long time.

    Advice to Management

    A focus in needed to make internal infrastructure changes (VMs, Kubernetets, network bandwidth) easier and faster since. A lot of innovation that never leaves the drawing board (so no one ever hears about it) is being held back due to lack of the proper infrastructure.
