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:

  1. People. Both consultants and their clients are very interesting and intelligent people. Such environment supports your professional and personal development.
  2. Steep learning curve. The learning speed is 2–3 times higher than in a usual career path. This helps you become a professional faster.
  3. 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.
