While dealing with various customer concerns, I was regularly given exciting tasks from other areas of PVS RS, such as creating new service overviews for customer acquisition or conducting training for new employees.
In 2019, I started to support team project management as a junior project manager. The experience from the service teams helped me enormously to understand and optimize the correlations behind the scenes. Due to the close cooperation of the project management with the CTO and IT, I was able to gain deep insights and first experiences in this area.
I especially liked the fact that I was able to see information from my studies in action and thus gain a better understanding than through purely theoretical content. I was also always supported in case of difficulties during the theory phase and was always given enough time during my submissions to prepare them in the practical phases. Even when I was brainstorming topics for project work and the bachelor’s thesis, I could always turn to my team, my training supervisor or even the management.
Another advantage of PVS RS compared to other dual partners was that I was made aware throughout my studies that I was studying for myself and was therefore free to choose electives or specializations in my course of study. Not every company offers this possibility, especially for my study program.
Throughout all the practical periods, I was particularly impressed by the warm and open company culture. No matter in which department, in which team or with whom you work with, everyone is open to questions, suggestions and new ideas. You are given responsibility and constant appreciation at an early stage. This makes working in a team and generally at PVS RS fun under any circumstances. All in all, I am convinced that PVS RS is a great dual partner, especially for career starters, because the teamwork and the flat hierarchy as well as the size of the company, which currently has around 200 employees, make it possible to gain a lot of insight and to fully understand the processes.
