110%all the time

We work hard but still have time for a joke. We bent backward to make a plan to keep the network operational. One big caring family. First is everything second nothing.

Project Manager

I was working at the Customer Care supporting the division with delivering systems to enhance the operations. I was running projects in that division liasing with different stakeholders in different departments. This made my job to be fun and interesting. The working environment and culture was that of a team work and to deliver projects efficiently and to make customers experience to be enjoyable. I have a learned all my project management skills in that environment.

Dynamic

A typical day included following up with various stakeholders and checking that deliverables required by various teams were being facilitated and delivered. I learned that nothing is simple, nor can anything be taken for granted. The management varied so it is difficult to comment in general. Those I appreciated were informed, dynamic, flexible, positive, involved, committed and approachable . Likewise, I worked with more than one co-worker and each were different so it is difficult to comment in general. Those I appreciated were informed, intelligent, flexible, positive and highly competent. The hardest part of the job was the regular change of direction. The most enjoyable part of the job was the constant learning.

Pros

Great team, great environment
