Happy work anniversary to me!

Ashwini Kabade

Business Analyst, Tieto

November 2012: It was a bright and shiny morning in Pune. I was waiting with equal measures of excitement and nerves, ready to start my first day at Tieto. I wasn’t sure if I'd made the right decision by joining the organization.

In all honesty, after working with three big brand names, my expectations weren't exactly sky-high. I was anticipating nothing more than the usual (and unnecessary) pressure cooker environment, and overlong hours of tedious and uncreative work - the usual corporate grind. Only time would tell if I'd made the right move.

Fast-forward to November 2016: I'm happy to say that I'm still here, celebrating my fourth year at Tieto! It really is true - time flies when you're having fun. My career at Tieto has entirely changed my perceptions of what an organization could offer its employees in terms of work culture. I have so much more than simply a job; in fact I can tell you that I've never had such an amazing journey in my entire working life!

Have I ever felt demotivated or depressed at Tieto? NO. This is the first organization I've ever worked at where every day I go to work with a big smile on my face, a soul full of enthusiasm, and a mind brimming with ideas. Everyone in this organization looks happy to be here, from the receptionist to the CEO.

Tieto doesn’t just take care of its customers' businesses (it does this brilliantly by the way); it also genuinely cares about its employees. I have been given so many incredible opportunities to grow my career, and to meet my personal goals. I also know that a warm welcome always awaits me at Tieto’s Nordic offices. My teammates aren't merely colleagues - they're my friends. My managers have turned into my mentors. What more could anyone ask for?

This year I decided I'd like to show my gratitude to Tieto for everything they've done for me. So, outside of my official job, I'm now a Tieto Ambassador for the Indian team. I enjoy life at Tieto so much that I figured - why not brag about it a little?

So here's a question for you - are you looking to work with cutting edge technologies, exciting innovations, and challenging projects? Are you ready to embrace a truly open source culture? Do you want to be part of a team where every contribution you make is valued, and where your managers thrive on watching your career progress? If the answer to all of those questions is a resounding 'YES' then I strongly recommend a career at Tieto.

It’s been a fantastic journey for me so far - and I know that the best is yet to come.

Happy work anniversary to me!
