    Advice to Management

    There are two locations, one in The Hague and one in Amsterdam. Make sure those two locations always will feel like one company.

    I have been working at albelli full-time

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, most people I work with have passion to what they do, great product to work with.

    Cons

    Most things (with some exceptions) seem to indicate on management team with no real motivation or idea on how to improve things, lacking in real leadership and hands on skills.

    Advice to Management

    Get closer to employees that do the actual work (have lunch or coffee with them). Take time to reflect on what and how you could do better, start from yourself and lead by example, take real ownership of what you do.

    I worked at albelli full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Good location
    - Free drinks
    - Cool colleagues.

    Cons

    I can't speak for all the departments as some of them seem to have it pretty good. But if you are in online marketing, and thinking about starting here, run the other way!

    They won't listen to a word you have to say no matter how much experience you have and you won't be the owner of your own work. There is an incredible amount of micromanagement and favouritism and the wrong decisions will be made because of it. There is no communication between workers and the leadership team. When hiring for higher positions, there are two things you have to worry about, sexism and nepotism.

    No career or growth options due to the micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Steve Jobs once said "It doesn't make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do; we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do."

    You are doing the opposite, which is counterproductive and makes people unhappy.

    So many people have left the company out of frustration, wake up now!

    Pros

    Great workmates, a lot of space for improvement, and a well placed office near the Central Station

    Cons

    IT salaries are already lower than the average with no plans to address it, a lot of worthless changes that bring no value to the company and even demotivate people and an overall feeling of beating around the bush in all regards.

    Advice to Management

    Have some meaningful and truthful discussions with your employees instead of sitting in your echo chamber.

    I have been working at albelli full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast growing, dynamic culture, international environment and good learning curve. Photo products are excellent quality. Location of course is a plus.

    Cons

    Limited growth, lack of vision/motivation for employees, too much stress on single thing. Gap between leadership and employees when it comes to accepting the change. No bonus, can be better at compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Be crisp and clear in your objectives while implementing things swiftly. Its good be transparent but also be a guiding road to success or role model rather than opening every topic for discussion that lead to conflict of interest and unnecessary delays in process.
    Be more customer centric.
    Keep hiring new and bright talents to support the growing business of company and meeting customer expectation.
