Comments from colleagues

  • "Although I was only a trainee, I felt myself to be valued as a full member of the team. I was always involved in a wide variety of processes, and was able to make suggestions at any time. In addition to my project management tasks, I particularly enjoyed running my trainee project in marketing, and the friendly and professional working relationship I had with the translators. For me, the outstanding feature of working at oneword was the really excellent team of colleagues and the supportive and professional working atmosphere they create."

    Angela Krolo, intern
  • "I joined oneword fresh from university, not very long ago. Thanks to the friendly and welcoming attitude I found here, I now feel right at home. What I find particularly appealing about my job: after a short time, I was entrusted with multi-faceted marketing projects, not only covering day-to-day tasks, but also involving strategic planning. I was encouraged to take on responsibility and develop my own talents and abilities. I really enjoy working with our service providers and in inter-disciplinary teams, because no two jobs are ever the same."

    Carolin Bauer, working in Marketing Management
  • "At oneword, I really value the fact that everyone is always working to improve. This not only affects the way we think about the services we provide to customers, but also how we organise ourselves in-house, how we structure our working processes, and how we develop the talents of every single employee. I started out as a project management trainee, and now I'm a team coach with responsibility for my own team. The most important issue for us here is that we retain our existing, flat hierarchies."

    Sara Cantaro, Project Manager and TeamCo
