Happily our purpose runs through our BearingPoint name
“I remember talking to the CEO at the time, and he said, ‘You will like this name, being Nordic, the sea-faring nations,’ because it’s a navigational term – something that fits the firm, that is both goal-focused, but also quite strategic in its thinking.
We don’t just do things, we have a purpose and a direction, and we don’t just run in any direction, we set a goal first, a point towards which we lay out the bearing and then navigate accordingly.”
“Something that struck me quite early was that you’re given quite a lot of responsibility. It might be challenging, but I think most people here love challenges. You are surrounded by talented colleagues whom you can always ask for advice. I think sharing, which many people do very well – that’s one of the strengths here. People are very professional. At the same time we have a lot of fun together. People here are positive, energetic, and it’s a very nice and unique social environment. A thing I like a lot about our company is the low hierarchy. It’s easy to speak to managers, discuss diverse topics, and work together in projects as a team.
Furthermore, our company has an environment that encourages initiatives and new ideas, both internally and at the client. I really like the emphasis on having an entrepreneurial mindset thinking outside the box.”
“We are looking for entrepreneurs, so it’s more the start-up approach that we are selling to people. We are a very nimble organization. We need to experiment; we need to innovate and this innovation can come with different people, different strategies, different segments. We are always very positive with that.”
