Working in the NL:
directness and flat hierarchy.
When I first moved to the NL I had to take a few steps back in my career. But then a few steps up followed. In the NL, promotions happen relatively fast. I like that here you have the freedom to address topics directly with all levels of hierarchy. But I would say I could have the same type of working opportunity also in my home country.
What I like the most about working in the NL is the directness and the flat hierarchy.
By coming in the NL, I’ve been exposed to several different cultures and people. I think this could be considered a positive point. Nevertheless, it could cause some stress having to quickly adjust to the new environment, weather, food, new job, new social circle!
Living in the NL
Currently, I live in Utrecht. Things here work and are well organized. Negative points could be the weather and the food! But I intend to stay in the NL for the upcoming years!
