    Pluspunten

    Best company I’ve ever worked for. Amazing culture, great people, feels like a family. So many benefits- free lunch, wear what you want, beers in the fridge (!), constant supply of fruit/snacks. You are given so much trust & autonomy to build your own business/pipeline you are desperate to repay that trust. Flexible working- can work from home the odd day a week if you need too. Lots of young intelligent people in the company with a desire to make a positive impact on the organisation. Unbelivable company parties! Very few egos in the company, senior staff very approachable as well as our C-Level suite. Best product in the payments market by far- Adyen continue to disrupt an industry full of outdated legacy technology, which was previously dominated by the traditional banks. Adyen continue to innovate. Little politics, people talk straight and pick up the phone- email culture is discouraged! Success is also driven via great teamwork & working in teams to achieve is encouraged as well as sharing responsibility.

    Minpunten

    Communication within the company and across departments could sometimes be better. But it is improving. Training for new starters could improve- not much structure and very much learn on the job/ask your colleagues. I understand processes are being put in place to improve this.

    Advies aan management

    Lots of new staff joining at the moment across the company as we continue to rapidly grow. Make sure we continue to hire on culture as well as talent. As the culture is one of the things that makes Adyen so great to work for!

    Pluspunten

    - Free lunch
    - Interesting industry with great clients
    - The best work-life balance
    - We improved our on-boarding with better documentation for new hires
    - Most people are really nice and sincere people
    - Trips to Europe, of course if you are wise with spending.
    - There is no predilection of European hires over American
    - It has an extremely bright future due to the product, in spite of the toxic culture

    Minpunten

    It is with great sadness that I write this review after years of being at Adyen but I find it necessary for the company to listen without putting myself in the crossfire.

    I would entice everyone to read at the positive reviews and see if they give pointed examples or facts as I do here. You will notice most are insipid because
    1) they are 'requested' by HR to write reviews
    2) they really have not substantive material to defend their position.

    I would suggest the company is a great option for people who are far enough in their careers or just starting off.

    - Compensations: Low base salaries, and bad stock options (read below).

    - Stock options: As mentioned stock options are very low. New hires received the same as old hires. 100 stock options

    - Removed Management: Upper level management (e.g. COO) removed all of the managers (Marketing, Sales, Technical Support, etc.) because they supposedly could not bring the company to scale and replaced them with people with a big ego, b-level pedigrees, and who had the 'culture' that fit with the COO

    - Department Management: They believe their way of doing things is right without taking too much into consideration members who have been in the payment's industry longer than they have. They may be expert is marketing or sales, yet not when it comes to payments. Listen.

    - Retention: Most people leave because of low compensation or no career growth (read below), they have left to Stripe or some other lead competitor. I really wish them all the best.

    - No Career growth unless...: As others have mentioned, no career growth is true. HR and Management will say there is no career path set and that it is not a place for people who want "flat structure and told what to do". They seem to put the blame on something being wrong with you and not them. They need to listen. The company has seen a number of these examples play out.

    1) If you want to join a different team they will say they are not hiring for that team to keep you from joining. Even if you try to do projects with the team and make moves so that you are already doing the role, you will not be given the role. It is evident you can not create your own career path. There is no commitment and only postpone having conversations about career progress. If you have another offer, take it. They will not ever be able to match.

    The honest difference between those who have advanced e.g. Account management > product management or some other department is because they fit the 'culture'.

    - Kool-Aid: It is a forced culture, you have to drink the kool-aid. Very few people are actually aware of what is going on.

    - Not scaling: Will not hire engineers because it would be impossible to retain them, they will only ever have business people and even some core team they will not hire. It is all in Amsterdam.

    - Ego: Management in SF does have an ego

    - Perception is reality: If someone has a problem with you, they will not come to you, and has the ear of management you will fall out of favor.

    Advies aan management

    Compensation.

    Be honest with your employees.

    Provide career growth opportunities on merit, not politics.

    Bring more C-level executives to defuse the power vacuum.

    HR - be honest, you seem to think you only serve the company.

    Dissolve the ego, that is your threat to scale.

    The reviewers who say there is nothing wrong are seriously delusional.
     You have to expect more out of the company you work for and spend more than half of your day.

    Pluspunten

    International company where everyone has a "roll up your sleeves and get it done" attitude
    Employees have a lot of autonomy
    Dutch culture of talking straight creates an open environment where feedback is encouraged and welcomed
    Flat hierarchy, no middle management with easy access to President, COO, and SVPs
    2-3 business trips to Amsterdam each year
    Great work-life balance, taking time off is actually encouraged
    ...and most importantly- the product is fantastic!

    Minpunten

    The aforementioned flat structure leads to a lack of formally defined leadership positions, so those looking for a more traditional path of individual contributor --> manager --> director may not find what they're looking for here.

    Advies aan management

    Listen closely to employee feedback. Make sure we don't lose the culture as we scale.

    Pluspunten

    This review is mostly specific to the New York office, but I've got only awesome things to say about the company overall.

    I work with such an amazing group of hardworking, supportive individuals in the NY office. I've worked at several other companies in New York, and I've never felt so at home. From my first day, everyone made me feel welcome and appreciated.

    Adyen is a global company with 700+ employees, but the New York team only has 20+ people and really feels like a family. We have the support of departments and teams all over the world, but we're also able to walk over and chat with every coworker in the office easily.

    We're in a brand new office near Union Square with a roof deck, and they've done a great job of making the office a fun space to work in (shout out to our kombucha/cold brew coffee kegerator!).

    We have monthly updates with Amsterdam HQ, and frequent catchups with our other US office in San Francisco. We even travel out to SF 3x a year to bring the entire US team together for workshops/speaker events/team outings. Each new employee gets to travel to Amsterdam for onboarding, and we have a full-company retreat in the Netherlands every year. The company prioritizes communication and collaboration, from the top down, and it really shows.

    Minpunten

    There can be some lag between offices when it comes to email responses and follow ups, but that's the norm with any international company. Since New York is in between our SF and Amsterdam offices, we have time in the morning to catch up with Europe, and time in the afternoon to see what SF is up to.

    Since we're a smaller team in NY, we're not as structured as some of the larger offices. Employees have a lot of autonomy, and are responsible for their own success. For me, that's a huge plus, but it may be negative for people who need more day-to-day support. The larger offices have more departments and structure built in, which I'm sure NY will have as it grows.

    Advies aan management

    Continue doing what you're doing. Thank you for believing in your employees. Recruiting Team - Keep it up! You've hired a bunch of amazing people who really know how to make an impact. Let's all work together to keep the Adyen culture strong!

    Pluspunten

    Travelling is cool, you get to meet talented teammates and people in the company. You get the opportunity to try to take on projects even if you're not from the HQ (Amsterdam).

    Minpunten

    Management doesn't seem to want their team to grow and flourish into what they want to pursue. This has often caused friction between managers and their team. New managers that come in focus on business, not people. And that is why we lose people. Sometimes there is a feeling of forced culture.

    Advies aan management

    Empower your employees that aren't from Amsterdam. They too have the knowledge to help the company grow.

    Lot of autonomy and a great company to work for. Amazing company culture (and love the food and the barista).

    Minpunten

    Because of flat company structure you have to have an entrepreneurial mindset. Nobody is going to tell you how to do your job, you just have to do it and add value to the company.

    Pluspunten

    Although more than 10 years old, Adyen still has a start-up feel to it. This is evident in all the typical tech start-up perks such as a barista and great lunches, but most importantly it is evident in the great culture. There is a no nonsense attitude where everyone keeps working for the good of the company instead of themselves and people remain approachable. This is in great part a result of the time and attention spent by senior management on preserving this atmosphere even though the company grew. My colleagues are fun to work with and really smart, which for me is perfect. I feel like there is a true meritocracy at Adyen.

    Minpunten

    Beware that Adyen is a high pace company that requires you to be able to adapt quickly. It also assumes all employees are self reliant. If you prefer a lot of guidance or a set career path you probably are not a good fit. You have to be willing to create your own opportunities.

    Most empathetic, intelligent and passionate people you will ever work with. I am pushed to be the best version of myself both professionally and personally every day.
    No hierarchy/bureaucracy - everybody is willing to pitch in and get their hands dirty
    You can make what you will with your role.
    Opportunity to work with the most innovative and interesting companies of our time
    Incredible healthcare plans
    3+ Trips to Amsterdam headquarters of year
    Truly global company with enormous potential
    Kind, thoughtful leaders who care about your happiness and professional development

    Minpunten

    - This would be a hard environment if you really enjoy structure and being told how to perform/what to do. I personally thrive in it.
    - Many critical roles are based out of Amsterdam ( headquarters), but that's slowly shifting.

    Advies aan management

    - Maintain the culture and the flexibility.
    - Listen to employees to keep the culture so that we can continue to retain talent.
