How was your onboarding experience at 99?
My integration went well, I first started working as an intern and then I became a consultant. I was warmly welcomed by all the team members. Only two weeks after I joined 99 Advisory Luxembourg, the containment began therefore, we all worked remotely. Consequently, we launched meeting calls every morning, aiming to talk about the daily tasks, to share information with everyone, and mainly to encourage each other to stay in a good mood.
What projects have you been tasked with?
At the beginning, I mostly helped my colleagues with internal audit missions for domiciliation companies. Then, I had the opportunity to take on a risk management mission for a private bank. The mission associated technical aspects and human skills, that was appealing. Then I cooperated on an implementation study of an electronic signature for the same bank.
I am currently carrying out a KYC mission to review and analyse the stock of policyholders for the wealth management department of a large international banking group. The consultancy firm genuinely trusted me for these first missions, which I really enjoyed.
How does the firm help you grow?
At 99 Advisory Luxembourg, I worked on diversified missions allowing me to become more versatile and resourceful. Besides, I received trainings aiming to develop new skills or to gain industry knowledge. My internship supervisor – who then became my manager, advised me on the consulting rules and behaviour, which helped me get more confident, especially in front of high-level clients.
How do you fit into the 99 Advisory values?
The value that I appreciate the most and that I apply every day is meritocracy. This value is highly significant within the company, indeed working hard is always rewarded, and sometimes even more: from an intern I grow into a consultant.
Then, I would say ambition. At 99 Advisory Luxembourg we are always pushed forward, the firm pushes us to surpass and to give the best of us during the missions. I would add, altruism, respect and solidarity as the top management is always keen to discuss with the consultants.
What do you like about the corporate culture?
The whole team is involved in the company’s life, we organise calls at least once a week to discuss the current mission, the newcomers, the future missions and else. Additionally, we participate in weekly events such as afterworks, we meet each other, we share all together, we learn from the others and we transmit our own experience. As we all come from a different background, it is undoubtedly gratifying.
