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

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice atmosphere, free train travel

    Cons

    I feel like I'm being micromanaged and have no autonomy over the product I'm the PO of. Feels more like being a secretary.

    Advice to Management

    Don't force teams into quarterly goals that leave no room for self improvement or initiative.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Amersfoort (Netherlands)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Aangemeld via generieke LinkedIn vacature en daarna door recruiter op specifieke functie doorverwezen. Telefonisch gebeld met de recruiter en daarna een video interview. Later bleek een slechte match op een niet relevant team met mijn achtergrond.
