    Good starting point for relocation, good end stop before finising the career, boring for senior devs

    Pros

    - a lot of space for self-improvement - flat hierarchy inside KPN - modern technology stack - great pension options - quite high salary for medior-level devs - work/life balance is not that balanced and actually "life" part has bigger focus here.

    Cons

    - technical debt is not addressed that well and is constantly piling up - backend services architecture is not being reviewed by anyone, sometimes decisions about it are being made by management - a lot of integrations with third-party services, sometimes it is completely unclear who is responsible for what - no so high rates for experienced developers - work/life balance is not that balanced and actually "life" part has bigger focus here, sometimes it was really annoying that people leave as soon as it is their time to leave without finishing simple task we were working in pair - processes sometimes seem to be more important than achieving actual results, though they are not that enforced, so team still have freedom to work in a way they prefer - not so much technical challenges for senior devs

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at KPN. It's a friendly environment, they care about you and your development. Management is open to feedbacks and tries to improve things. It worth mentioning that I worked at the Amsterdam office (KPN Technium), and as I know from feedbacks other work locations can be quite different.

    Cons

    The Tech stack can be quite old, and some architectural decisions can be reasonably justified. Slow in progress, and not everyone tries to improve things.
