Stories of employees.
“I started as a consultant in Sutherland when the whole company was not more than 130 people. On the sixth month I was promoted to team leader - managing the German team of around twenty people in one of our projects. In 2012 I left the country for a while but when I returned to Bulgaria, I came back in Sutherland. I was offered a position in a new project - the conditions and the project itself were very attractive. As a manager of the team I went through the whole launching process - training, know-how exchange, recruitment, establishment of best practices. The project was going really well and I was promoted to senior team manager. A year ago I became an account manager, which was my initial ambition. I have grown with the project - it is developing really well and today we are already 250 people.”
“I have acquired all operational and people management skills in Sutherland. The company gives you knowledge and the opportunity to make decisions and take responsibilities, to be independent.”
“Sutherland is structured in a way that gives you the opportunity to get to know other departments as human resources, finance, business planning, which is rare for other companies. In Sutherland, if you want to lead a team well, you have to be competent in all these areas. The company teaches you to do the link and the balance between the units in order to achieve all the targets.”Read more
"I feel that my story in Sutherland is predefined. When the recruitment specialists got in touch with me, I had been looking for a challenge of this level. I had been managing teams for quite some time and I felt that I needed something new, dynamic and pioneering. Although I was not initially informed of the name of the project I immediately felt that it was Spotify. I went through a total of six interviews, which showed me that the company really insists on the selection and quality of the people."
“I have been feeling great since day one. I was positively surprised that in such a large company, people have preserved very down to earth and friendly attitude.”
“What makes me come to work with a smile – our people. We are about 120 people in my team, all of them are unique – crazy, creative, young, they load me with energy. We are so different that we enrich each other every day, both professionally and personally, which is much more valuable than the knowledge you can gain at university.”
“The work has merged with my life. I do things with my colleague’s on a regular basis, we share our hobbies with each other and we’ve become close friends.”Read more
“Sutherland was the company that inspired me to stay in Bulgaria. I was still writing my bachelor thesis, when I was called for an interview – I was really happy that it was for a big American company - first because I wanted work as a corporate PR, and second – because my big dream is to study in the US. I thought this experience would be great for my CV. I had to go through four interviews – it was the first time that I had to accomplish something of that scale. When I got the job offer I was so happy and proud. I decided that maybe I was meant to stay at least another year in Bulgaria and gain experience in social media. This is my second year already - I like my job, and I give my best every day.”
“My team is great - amazing people.”
“After two years in my team I think there is more to learn and there are more trainings to help me develop. I want to grow and I think Sutherland is the place to do it.”Read more
“Two years ago I started as a German Tier 1 agent and four months later I was promoted to a Tier 2 – a more technical and more responsible position. In the beginning my managers were impressed with my personal skills, but I didn’t have any technical knowledge. Nevertheless, they gave me a chance and I worked hard to learn and develop myself. I was amazed that they promoted me so quickly.”
“Each day is unique, we face a lot of challenges on daily basis, but we are a team of devoted people who give 100% of what they can and together we achieve our goals. My colleagues are awesome.”
“We keep close partnership with our customers and put special focus on adding value to their business. We deliver services for leading companies which gives us insight of their business models, processes, tools and development strategies. The variety of industries we operate in gives us exposure to cutting edge technologies and access to know-how from best in class companies. Combine all this and it gives you the formula of how we grow together.”
“There is open and honest communication and strong collaboration within the organization – a great achievement for such a large corporation.”
“The atmosphere in the office is great. We are exposed to different cultures, a colorful mix of industries, clients and services we deliver, which makes each day a unique experience. The variety of business situations that I face and handle every day develop me and teach me on new skills and competences.”
