Long thread - 10 years in The Netherlands.
My first job was as a support engineer for a relatively small ISP, the small office had around 20 different nationalities at the time I was working there, and I noticed that the working culture was different from what I was used to.
My ideas were taken into consideration, was being rewarded and appreciated by the effort that I was putting into my job, and pretty much a flat hierarchy.
