"The international culture is also what I like here, collaborating across borders and working with colleagues from all over the world."
Coming to the office and feeling that I have constant support from my colleagues - regardless of whether we work on the same project or in the same department. The international culture is also what I like here, collaborating across borders and working with colleagues from all over the world.
I work at the Project Management Office of a large customer account as a PMO Assistant. I have a variety of tasks, but a typical day can include administration, assisting managers and working on invoicing. I also meet project teams and participate in Steering Committees where major project decisions are taken.
I wanted to jump into an exciting and future-oriented industry. I also wanted a company with sound values that had a global presence. Fujitsu's 2-year programme stood out because it allowed professional development in a single area as opposed to rotating through different roles.
Sense & Respond which is a twist on Lean Methodology, leadership training, self-awareness sessions focusing on personal development, and many more. On top of that, there's lots of online training available. I've attended Project Management and Microsoft Project courses, as well as increasing my IT service management knowledge by getting an ITIL Foundation certificate.
An aspect of the company culture that I did not expect is the flexibility and control over your own work. It's an activity based office where no cubicles are allowed. Working from home once in a while is also a perk that was much appreciated when I had a long commute to the office. The company seems to value the personal development of its employees.
