Starting the computer, entering two passwords, quick e-mail check, a morning coffee and then I realized: It’s already the last day of my internship. Three months already over. What a great time. My thoughts revolved around the two projects I worked on, around the new experiences in consulting and especially around the new friendships I made. In my last post I told you about the great working atmosphere and team spirit at Bayer Business Consulting (BC). As you can imagine in such a friendly environment saying goodbye is always kind of sad. However, instead of being sad I’d like to review my two projects to give you a more detailed insight into what it means to work as a consultant with BC.
Like I told you in my last blog entry the first project I worked on was a strategy project within Bayer HealthCare. In more detail the project focused on defining an IT strategy to enable world class R&D. Besides organizing and executing workshops I was responsible for the preparation and wrap-up of management interviews as well as for weekly team meetings.
The second project dealt with the definition of Bayer’s innovation strategy on global level. In contrast to the first project this one had just started. The first aim was to define a precise project scope and to review the Status Quo.
Working on two completely different projects at different progress stages was very interesting. It gave me the opportunity to get insights into many important aspects of a project in consulting. Because of those interesting insights, the steep learning curve and the great working spirit I am deeply convinced that BC is an amazing place to work. Do you think about working in an Inhouse consulting? If so, you should apply for a job with BC 😉
For now, let me say, BIG THANKS to all the BC colleagues and to the Blind Applying team for making this internship a truly enriching experience for me!
