Bastiaan de Koning on working at Van Donge & De Roo:

"Van Donge & de Roo is a family business where everything is possible. No bureaucracy, but quick and dynamic action. This type of work appeals a lot to me. Versatility is also of paramount importance within the organization, making the work far from monotonous.

Van Donge & de Roo offers me complete freedom to also suggest and develop my own ideas and thereby also influence the organization. I think self-development is of great importance. Because of the accessibility of the management, I get all the freedom for this. And also the scale of the organization, with its 50+ subsidiary companies, is a reason why the work is so versatile and offers so many opportunities.

What I haven’t mentioned is the informal and pleasant working atmosphere. The bar opens at the end of the working days on Thursday and Friday. Here you come into contact with many other employees while enjoying music and a drink."
