At GFT, it’s all about people
What is important in a project manager's work? Deadlines? Budget? Sure, yes, but the ability to meet them depends primarily on the people you work with. My IT career previously covered the insurance industry, telco, retail banking or a project for a pharmaceutical company in Silicon Valley. But it's thanks to the people at GFT that I decided to stay here. You don't break through countless departments and hierarchy levels to establish the details of the project over here. You know you have a real impact on whether you're successful. Support functions such as HR and IT Support react immediately to any delivery needs. And when a problem occurs, you have 'job families' behind you, a group of people who are always willing to help.
I also enjoy the global aspect of working at GFT. Already in the first project I had the pleasure to cooperate with specialists from Germany, Italy and Spain - although it may seem difficult for people of such different countries to cooperate, everything worked perfectly. I was able to learn more about GFT’s foreign projects during a series of Accelerated Leadership Programme trainings, which were held in sunny Barcelona with my colleagues from all over Europe.
At GFT it quickly became clear that you don't have to work for the biggest consulting companies to provide solutions for the world's banking leaders. My portfolio of GFT projects includes, for example, implementation of a platform in the area of investment risk, which we developed together with a team of forty people from Warsaw and Poznań. I was extremely happy to receive the annual Committed award - one of the five key values of the company - at that time. I was even more pleased with each nomination for my team members. Most importantly, we remain hungry for new challenges, and at GFT, there are plenty of those on the horizon.
