I was given a lot of freedom to find inefficiencies and streamline them to make them easier for the group/ organization. I often worked with managers and directors closely to identify and locate problems that needed – more... to be solved. The most rewarding part was solving these puzzles - finding and fixing bottlenecks within the IT/operations infrastructure. Most enjoyable part of the job was having the freedom to be creative and work with many different people on projects. – less
