Trade and Investment Officer (Former Employee) – Dhaka – 5 August 2016
I had completely opposite experience while working under two different bosses at the same job. It depends a lot on your manager than the organization.
My first manager was bold, confident and had the ability to think out of the box. He never let people play office politics. I learned a lot from him.
Since my first manager's tenure was over (diplomats come for only few years), there was a transition and I had completely opposite experience with the new one. She was nervous, process-oriented and was very quick to judge. She works best with people pleasers and under her tenure, there was lot of office politics. I knew MS Excel better than her and she was not comfortable with that.
Data Entry Officer (Former Employee) – New Delhi, Delhi – 15 June 2016
As a young person I was very eager to learn the work and as a result I was trained quickly. Soon after my training I gained confidence so much so that I was tasked with training others which I very much enjoyed. The amount of data that needed transferring to the database kept me busy throughout the day.
I learnt to be accurate and developed an eye for details. On one occasion I was commended by the Management for rectifying a major flaw in the process. The Management was very supportive of my endeavours.
My colleagues having identified that I was totally new to the country supported me in every way. My father was a British Diplomat and was posted to New Delhi/India and I was with him as his dependent.

Trade and Investment Advisor- Life Sciences (Former Employee) – Hyderabad, India – 2 November 2015
I loved this job as it gave me a very challenging assignment that I had never done before. Influence a country's economy and enhance government relations between the two countries. This role gave me full ownership of a region and helped me gain more experience in prioritization and time management.
Good number of holidays/leaves
Not enough compensation for the kind of work we are expected to do
