- What has been your experience working here at Alcor?
My experience of working here in Alcor has been great! The company’s environment is wonderful, the coworkers are friendly, the management and HR teams are approachable and transparent.
The reason Alcor is growing at a great pace is because of the quality of work it delivers to their client. We work proactively on issues and try to give the best solutions to the client. We have a very high CSAT score and get a lot of client appreciations.
Alcor is a company which has a vision and employees can see themselves growing along with this vision. We don’t work in silos; we are given opportunities to work and expand our knowledge in different areas as well.
Alcor conducts annual hackathons and we often work on product development and research; this also helps in pushing our limits and learn new and latest technologies. The employees are also recognized for the efforts they put in and are appreciated for their work in a public platform.
The seniors always have your back and you’re never left high and dry.
- Why do you feel proud to be an Alcorian?
I feel proud to be an Alcorian because of its culture, work and the vision. I can see myself growing and learning new things in a great environment where everyone is appreciated.
- What’s been that one defining moment for you at Alcor where you felt happy, successful and motivated?
has been many such moments, however if I have to choose one then I can say that
the interaction which I had with the CEO and the Founder at the inception of my
career here in Alcor paved a path for my professional success.
We shared our goals and company’s vision and realized that they were similar. Post that, I was placed in a team where my aspirations are taken care of and which challenged me to push my own limits. Since then, I have been given a chance to research and learn. I also got a chance to represent my company and give webinars to different regions around the globe. This was a new experience which motivated me and helped me to further expand my limits.
- Who is Abbas? How can you best describe yourself?
I am a self-motivated individual who likes exploring and learning new things. Coming from a computer background, I love gadgets and like coding and learning new technologies.
I challenge myself to advance on a personal level. I take myself as competition and keep a track of where I was a month or a year back. I like to think out of the box and try to do things that distinguish me from the crowd. I draw inspiration from my father, Steve Jobs, Harvey Specter from Suits, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk. I get demotivated by liars, dishonest, manipulating and unfaithful people.
I am a social person and like meeting new people and try to build a good rapport with them. I was involved in social activities during my college days and have good leadership experience of managing college clubs and societies. I am a creative person and like working on the Adobe Illustrator and do sketching in free time. I like watching Sitcoms, Action, and Drama TV Shows and likes listening to pop and alternative rock music.
