    Recommends

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

    Pros

    - good salary for such job position - quite relaxed atmosphere - many friendly people - helpful colleagues - fruit days - free lunch during national holidays - Sodexo card an other benefits - some opportunities for the development (being a backup, extra courses, etc.) - extra activities from time to time (medical day, picnic, etc.)

    Cons

    - at the end of the day it's still a corporation with its corporate rules - limited homeworking possibilities - problems with receiving time off work longer than 10 working days at time - "on top" isn't all rosy

    Advice to Management

    Just a short advice to some of the team leaders - remember that the whole company has a common goal :)
