    I worked at Coolblue full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great meeting rooms, awesome people

    Cons

    Management overhead. Lack of transparency, especially when one of the company principles is "Open, Honest & Direct". Lack of technical direction (in the software development department). Always reducing employee conditions while bragging about the very big revenue. Creation of useless career positions that stop being available after a short time.

    I have been working at Coolblue full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Use of agile methodologies (Scrum and KanBan). - Glass team rooms: each team has his own team room, made out of glass walls on which you can doodle. - Flat organisation (Almost no overhead). - Near public transport (Rotterdam Central station). - Awesome team members and (international colleagues). - Quality above quantity: Proper solutions for exciting and challenging problems without cutting of corners. - If you think something should be improved (on a process or technical level), you can take time do so and improve the company! - Work on different projects (CRM system, Website, logistical software etc.)

    Cons

    I don't have any at the moment.
