Meet Alex, Senior Business Analyst at Seuss+. Discover how Alex’s career has progressed and how he now finds himself essential in various company areas. Alex is a metaphoric octopus who lends a helping hand everywhere he can!
Hi Alex! Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I started at Seuss+ as an associate consultant and worked my way up as a senior business analyst. I am acting as an expert in multiple different projects. I give advice and create the deliverables needed, optimizing outsourcing and procurement and finding new opportunities.
I have a metaphor that would describe me perfectly. A college once described me as the octopus in the company. I can do anything for anyone, and most importantly, I am willing to help.
How long have you been an employee at Seuss+?
I have been at Seuss+ for about 3.5 years.
How did you learn about Seuss+?
Via a job board. I found the application for the job and was seeking an opportunity like this. I went through the interview process and was quite surprised by the fit. Even though I was also in the process of applying for another job, I choose Seuss+. They showed genuine interest, and there was this environment of transparency that I liked.
Why do you like working with Seuss+?
Seuss+ is hybrid
Even though the work is analytical, everyone is a people person. I like to be surrounded by people, and relationships are essential. A positive and encouraging environment is very valuable, and building the right connections is a high necessity.
This has been since day one since the interview. You get to know one another while also delivering high-quality work. It makes you want to work and not feel like you have to work.
The environment is very open, and opinions are valued, no matter the title you have. There is no feeling of superiority. The mantra that roams the hallways is that working at Seuss+ is not a one-person job but a team effort.
What is something you find unique about Seuss+?
A typical consulting company has defined tasks that one needs to do. Not at Seuss+, no, you have strengths, and you should use these. There are a willingness and motivation to do more and to elaborate on your tasks if you can.
Also, we are one team. This time, I do not want to focus on the inbound team; no, we are one team with the client. We build a relationship with them and wish to be a part of their overall growth. We try to develop this connection which makes them retain and stay with us.
Did you experience a certain moment you would like to share?
I remember this time 2 years ago when we had this big, respected client and we started a project regarding vendors. Not to detail, but there was this significant layer of complexity and so much work to do. The whole department stopped what they were doing to help each other. It was liberating and inspiring to see that everyone is willing to go the extra mile.
There is another point that I want to mention is regarding the previously say retainment of clients. It is so cool and fun to see that customers grow with our help. They start collaborating with us on one project. This is a success, and they ask for help with another project. Before you know it, it’s three years later, and multiple projects we collaborated on have helped them to grow as big as they are now. This shows that building relationships is essential and that a relationship should be built on trust and mutual interest.
Thank you Alex for sharing your experiences with us!
