“What’s important to me: having fun at work.“
A lot of people are already in a bad mood on Sunday nights when they think about Monday. That’s not at all the case for me! And I think that’s also true for most of my colleagues in the company. We have flat hierarchies, and employees can quickly distinguish themselves with their own initiative. Whoever wants to make his way gets the chance. Especially with regard to the USA, I can say that we have very good employment contracts that are based on European standards. Paid leave, continued payment in the event of illness – that’s what most people dream of here.
I am not thinking of returning to Germany anytime soon. I have built my life here, and the environment and nature are simply great. There are many state parks, lakes and mountains. They are not like the Alps, in terms of the height, but they do give me a little feeling of home!
