From ASML to Uber: The best employers in the Netherlands, according to Linkedin

A recent report put together by social media and job platform LinkedIn has revealed the top 25 employers in the Netherlands in 2023, with ASML, one of the world's leading manufacturers of chip-making equipment, claiming the top spot. 

LinkedIn’s Top Companies 2023 

For the third consecutive year, LinkedIn has put together a list of the top 50 employers in the Netherlands - and in other countries across the globe - focusing on the best employers for workers looking for jobs that allow them to grow their careers. 

The study involves assessing a variety of factors, including the opportunities for employee advancement both at the company and after they leave, opportunities for training and career development within the firm, the strength and stability of the company and finally how many layoffs took place in 2022. 

Top 25 workplaces to grow your career in the Netherlands 

While this year’s list includes a number of tech and software development companies, LinkedIn’s ranking features a wide range of employers and industries. ASML claims the top spot, but software developers Miro, ServiceNow, Atlassian, and SAP all score places in the top 15. 

Interestingly, renowned sporting goods companies Nike and Adidas both feature in the top 10, as do Amazon and Uber - two companies that have made headlines in recent years for their unfavourable working conditions and employment contracts. Aside from the various international companies that feature, Shell - an Anglo-Dutch multinational - came in 14th place, while two Dutch banks, Rabobank and ING, also claimed spots in the top 25.

Ask the people working in sweatshops in third world misery if nike & Adidas are good employers, & drivers for Uber, or delivery drivers for Amazon. What about the10’s of thousands of people who have been made redundant by the Rabobank & especially ING? And yes, I know this is about employment in the Netherlands, but this is a global economy.

Hard to believe that an awful place like Miro made it to that list. I wonder what were the criteria adopted to classify companies as good places to work. I'd recommend anyone remotely considering an application at Miro to first research Glassdoor reviews. You'll find some honest feedback there and I'm not talking about the hysterical clapping of hands of people who were asked my then to submit reviews to counterweight the bad ones.
