Most challenging and highly educative position ever held
Account Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Bangalore Urban, Karnataka20 March 2017
It was indeed an honour to work with one of the world's best employers who still remains in the top 10 positions globally. An organization which places tremendous priority to families and personal life of an employee. Skillful hand picked Management which knows the pulse of the department and every employee. Detail oriented organization which recruits employees very strategically and under stringent methodologies. Informal friendly culture motivates an employee to remain committed and loyal to the organization. Working was fun and managers knew how exactly to extract best results from every employee. I gained the highest level of knowledge in Market Research, account development, inside sales, channel sales, technological insights, handling and managing C-level officials from across the world.
