    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at iBasis full-time

    Pros

    Dynamic, innovation, kind and fun employees.

    Cons

    Similar to any company, iBasis had both pros and cons but unfortunately anything positive was quickly destroyed when Feddo Hazewindus joined as CEO, two years ago. There was a review on here earlier that was spot on but has since been removed. Hazewindus joined iBasis as CEO with no relevant experience and zero decency or compassion for the employees. In his 2 short years he has managed to demolish all that was good about iBasis: Culture Value Innovation Product enhancement Under Hazewindus “leadership”, iBasis is a shell of its former self. At one point there was a caring HR team, but Hazewindus destroyed that as well. Shame on you, Feddo Hazewindus

    Pros

    iBasis was a awesome place to work, the colleagues were very friendly, the business had been growing and they kept the product advanced in the market.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any downsides of working in that company, as long as the employee has the drive to advance own career, there were space to grow

    Company is slowly loosing it's footing in the telecom field. It used to be a leader in VOIP but today it is barely competing with big corporations. Trying real hard to stay relevant.
