What I Do
I am part of a small consulting and project management team that supports such internal company efforts as business development strategy, harmonization or corporate synergy, cost management initiatives, and country-specific issues management.
Most of the projects are three to six months in duration and involve various insurance divisions in both the head office (located in Switzerland) and the local offices throughout Europe (Germany, Italy, U.K., Spain, Belgium, etc.). During a project, I report directly to a client (the project leader), though the consulting team serves as a home base.
What I Enjoy Most
Every day is different in project management. There is an enormous amount of language exposure—German, French, Italian—and I am the native English speaker. My job provides the combination of industry-specific experience and general business experience that I could apply to any endeavor.
