    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Coolblue full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Learned a lot because of the unique situations given within the company - Met amazing colleagues which I still consider friends.

    Cons

    - Coolblue turned to the worse when changes left an incapable management layer in the IT department. People not suited to fulfill the "leadership" roles were promoted. - Coolblue never figured out how to remove bottleneck people from key positions and thus the top-down mentality arose - Gossip is now common and seriously affects the life of developers. - Diversity is barely non-existant.
