    I have been working at Van Oord full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Internationally challenging projects. Working with multidisciplinary teams. Room for personal growth. Plenty of courses on offer (internal + external)

    Cons

    Compensation seems a bit on the low site considering the working hours on projects. There is a leave period that directly follows a period of working abroad, although this is not well balanced with personal life. Sometimes you get stuck on a project that doesn't suit you and it is hard to change to a new project. You are stuck for the duration of that project.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on better work leave schedule for staff working on projects. Focus more on overall picture instead of micro managing little things. Especially on projects. This is project manager dependent though.
