Why I joined ABC and what do I like in this company?
Before joining ABC I had already had 2+ years of consulting experience. I decided to join ABC for a number of reasons. First of all, ABC attracts me as a really global company in terms of locations of projects. Even during last year we had projects from Central America to China and I had a chance to work on a project in China which is really unique experience. Another advantage of ABC is membership in IT-oriented Adastra Group. Cooperation within the group makes us really unique specialists and I appreciate it. Also my decision to join ABC was driven by our synergy. Being global, ABC has a focus on CEE and CIS countries where I have experience and can help company to grow.

What do I like on being a business consultant?
Business consultant is a very demanding profession. To succeed here you really have to like what you are doing. I like in business consulting the following three things:
- People. Both consultants and their clients are very interesting and intelligent people. Such environment supports your professional and personal development.
- Steep learning curve. The learning speed is 2–3 times higher than in a usual career path. This helps you become a professional faster.
- Work hard, party hard. Business consultants do not have a lot of free time and I like the way business consultants spend it. It is often some active rest as jeep tour, 2-weeks bike tour, kitesurfing, tour to Hong Kong, etc. which helps to refresh the brain and be ready for new challenges.
