    I worked at Liberty Global as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Interesting packages (transportation card, top class cars, possibility to receive a benefit to buy a bike, pension plan, health insurance paid directly by the company),, health programs for employees, very professional colleagues Good cantine, nice looking environment. Free coffee, fruit day, discounts on UPC products, small gift for Christmas, events organised regularly to build our network in the company.

    Cons

    Conflicts of priorities between departments. Very stressful exigences of the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent between departments to avoid "wars" between departments

    I worked at Liberty Global full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    Pros

    LG provides competitive slaries and benefits, there are opportunities for training and leadership assignments. Work is interesting, the company expands its activities contuniously and there are lots of M&A activities. there are many events during the year where colleagues can come together and do fun things together. (summer and Christmas parties, new year's receptions etc.)

    Cons

    The company's increasing size makes communication between departments less efficient, there is space for potential improvement regarding people managemement, the work culture is a bit controlling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less controlling, more focus on people management and soft skills, improve communication channels.

    Pros

    Working with the latest technologies in one of the biggest scales possible in mainland Europe with a large group of technically skilled people.

    Cons

    The culture is good, the people are good the politics and rapidly shifting directions can drive you mad sometimes, but maybe this is normal in a company of that size.

    Pros

    Upon arrival you understand that everything has been thought off in terms of making sure the employee feels at home and comfortable. A great work environement where everyone is very helpful and where management supports you and also trust that you will do the job to the best of your ability.
    Amazing location, amazing offices, great people and fantasit career opportunities.

    Cons

    With the legacy of being a traditional M&A growth orientated business, the company could do with some improvement in terms of systems and admin but having reached a certain business maturity, LG is currently working towards a more strategic alignement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Consolidates and communicates the Liberty Global Values.
    - GIve exposure to who's doind what within the company, job shadowing to understand the different priorities.
    - Accentuate external PR communications to drive organisational pride

    Pros

    decent package and that's pretty much it

    irresponsible management, no direction, no instructions, no ducumentation, no added value

    everything is solved by throwing money away on consulting companies

    Interesting industry, interesting products, a lot of potential but too much politics and mediocre middle managers.

    Pros

    Great technology, some excellent technical people. Good senior management in Europe and US. Good salary for staff with responsibility.

    Cons

    Too much politics and too many mediocre mid level managers (managers and directors). The company could remove a layer of managers only eager to show off instead of driving the company vision. Too little room for career growth, unless you are friend of someone higher in the hierarchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worth checking the benefits of introducing meritocracy into the company.
