Three reasons attracted me to Strategy& and also has kept me here since:
It was very easy – I felt instantly at home in this great and easy-going team. In terms of work contents I quickly got up to speed and learned the Strategy& way of doing things, thanks to good guidance from other team members. Later in the autumn I also joined “Induction to Strategy&”, four-day training in Munich with 40+ Strategy& new joiners across Europe, to further develop both my strategy consulting skills and to build a Europe-wide network.
It was 6 week operational / commercial due diligence for industrial buyer. It was interesting due to three aspects: 1) The scope of our work stream was interesting since it included many operational aspects and large amount of details that had to be taken into consideration to form a view into the synergies 2) The close co-operation with client’s team assigned to handle the project and 3) the project has also large internal team, since PwC network was delivering also other services (e.g. financial DD, tax DD) which also meant opportunities to learn new things about e.g. taxation and transfer pricing.
When I am not in the office you can probably find me engaged in nature-related hobbies, most likely either hiking, hunting or fishing.
