Assistant researcher (Current Employee), Bratislava – November 11, 2013
A typical day at work is working o my research or my tasks and having lunch with the other interns/junior consultants. Depending on the days we can have presentation by other colleagues.

The most enjoyable part is the fact that all my colleagues are very opened and sociable, from the interns to the director. – less
