    I worked at Liberty Global

    Pros

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Pros

    On the beginning is very good company, but after 2014 when they did re-organization everything became worst worst and worst. They dismiss all working contract of the employee, it doesn't matter you already work here in 10 years or more. I believed the situation for the employee is nightmare now, the company can easy dismiss your contract in tomorrow with any reason up to them, it doesn't matter you have good performance.

    Cons

    Company still do re-organization and badly for the employee. Every day just waiting when he/her around to get the letter for dismiss the contract. Work load can very heavy at this time. There are many 'special projects' with no plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please more humanity and loyal to the employee.
    Please think about employee loyalty and their family.
    Don't be arrogant.
