    Pros

    Flexibility work times, potential to try different areas of work, relaxed office atmosphere

    Cons

    Difficult to progress if you're not Dutch, the CEO only addresses the staff in Dutch i.e. during speeches, etc. Not a plcae to be if you're looking for a long-term opportunity. You will need to learn dutch to be accepted. Regularly changing comp& benefits. How the salary scheme works is a mystery to everyone including HR.
