    Pros

    Upon arrival you understand that everything has been thought off in terms of making sure the employee feels at home and comfortable. A great work environement where everyone is very helpful and where management supports you and also trust that you will do the job to the best of your ability.
    Amazing location, amazing offices, great people and fantasit career opportunities.

    Cons

    With the legacy of being a traditional M&A growth orientated business, the company could do with some improvement in terms of systems and admin but having reached a certain business maturity, LG is currently working towards a more strategic alignement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Consolidates and communicates the Liberty Global Values.
    - GIve exposure to who's doind what within the company, job shadowing to understand the different priorities.
    - Accentuate external PR communications to drive organisational pride

    Lots of opportunities, great campus in Amsterdam, very nice restaurant, free gym, lots of international professional and smart people around. Very dynamic and fast moving industry. Get the job done mentality.

    Cons

    Very political and complex structured company. Personal growth really depending on who you work for. in-consequent management behaviour, again strongly depending who you work for. Increasing amount of policies making it hard to get things done.

    Pros

    Compensations, benefits package, nice SR campus.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Departments fight each other, departments are lead by incompetent specialists, that are "managers" enough to forget and check reality. A lot of money is being thrown on solutions, that are then dropped. Development directions shift twice a day. Environment is unstable - U can forget about personal growth. Many ppl spend 10 years being NOC engineers without any progress whatsoever. Software cycle is being raped on daily basis, leading to low efficiency, which is being covered by managers. Leading idea in company - "If U don't want to do something - propose something else or go to a meeting". Be careful signing contract - may contain hidden clauses, that can be found in Dutch laws.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guys, wake up - U are loosing thousands of Euros, ppl come and go, there is no core in company. U have to stop buying companies and create chaos over chaos.
