Work-Life Balance at FPT

Work-Life Balance at FPT

What's the best way to present the culture of the company? Through its colleagues. So we asked them what their work at FPT brings them, what they really succeeded in, what are they proud of, and created the Success Story section.

Zuzana Kučerová, Tím Líder FSK-FI and HCM Services, SAP Consultant

I have been working for FPT as an SAP Consultant for almost 15 years. I have participated in various foreign projects, e.g. in Poland, Germany or Austria. Few weeks ago I accepted the offer to take up the Team Leader position, which is another challenge I am really looking forward to.

In my career, I grew most through the opportunity to spend two years on a project directly in Warsaw and then in Germany. Fpt allowed me to work for RWE (customer) directly from Essen. Invaluable was the special approach, as they also helped me find a nursery for my son. Those two years in Germany helped me a lot in my professional development, even though I traveled there with a child..

I also appreciate the approach to mothers on maternity leave. I worked alongside maternity leave with both children, which I consider to be a huge advantage for a person to, so to speak, not miss on anything. Especially when it comes to the IT area, which is constantly changing dynamically.

For me, it's a huge plus that the company allows us to do such a harmonization (Work Life Balance). It is really very important to have that feeling of importance even during this "outage" from the work environment.

Coffee Session with Tibor

Coffee Session with Tibor

Ability to choose a job based on the future "boss" is great. So we invited our Team Leaders to a virtual cup of coffee and asked them a few questions for you. And the bosses suddenly became people of flesh and blood and helped to complete the idea of our corporate culture.

TIBOR GUJDÁN, Multiplatform and Cloud Solutions

When I get up for work, I look forward to: The new challenges awaiting me, new opportunities where I can work with colleagues, thus getting new projects and increase business at FPT Slovakia.  

My career path: Začínal som ako .Net a Sql developer, najprv s jednoduchými úlohami. Postupne som nazbieral skúsenosti, až som vedel dodávať a navrhovať komplexné riešenia. Neskôr som sa rozhodol pre kariérnu zmenu a začal som sa venovať manažovaniu ľudí a generovaniu nového biznisu, aby som posunul našu firmu a našich ľudí na vyšší level.

I am responsible for: Designing services and delivery models for the customer, adhering to quality, development of people and, last but not least, finding new opportunities, projects for our and future colleagues.

The most amazing part of my job is: When two paths meet, namely the customer's request and the solution proposal of our team, which leads to the acquisition of the project and, of course, to the growth of our colleagues.

The biggest challenge I faced: Stáva sa to často, keď dochádza k vyjednávaniu a obhajovaniu ceny riešenia pred zákazníkom a presvedčenie zákazníka, že my sme ten správny partner. Konkurencia je veľká. No my v FPT určite vieme poskytnúť jedinečný prístup, s jedinečnými návrhmi.

The most memorable moment in my career: When we tried to start a whole new stream in the field of SmartHome. We started two, but this business expanded thanks to our amazing commitment and eventually more than 26 people participated in it.

I expect from people: Transparency, humanity, sincerity, professionalism. I value when people have a vision, since I try to fulfill this as a leader.

When leading people I consider important: Communication. I want people to know they have my trust, support and they can believe in the decisions I make. I expect the same from my people, that's the only way it can work. 

When I’m not working: I'm spending time with my family, when you miss this time, you'll never catch up. We have a lifetime for a career.

I am responsible for: A good atmosphere in the team and the results of our projects.

The most amazing part of my job is: Addressing challenges in project planning and execution. I have absolute freedom in how to do my job to the best of my ability. And there is also the opportunity to lead business opportunities.

The biggest challenge I faced: Preparing to complete the demanding AWS Cloud Architect certification.

The most memorable moment in my career: The decision to be an employee and give up my own independent business activities.

I expect people to: Be the owners of the entrusted problem or task and work done honestly. I do not forgive superficiality.

When leading people I consider important: Tolerance and respect.

When I'm not working: I work in the garden, travel with my family and study.

Milan Peťko, Senior ABAP Developer

Around 2006, I decided to try something completely different, even something different than what I had originally studied. And why FPT? I met a few people from FPT with whom I worked on joint projects while still working at the university. The company FPT (RWE) in Košice was just starting and so the team was still being formed. After several interviews and a few tests, I suddenly became an official SAP consultant for a German customer. Since my German had and still is far from perfect, I moved from a consultant to a developer. Only now has it all started. I learned programming, underwent various trainings, first projects, gradually becoming an ABAP programmer. First successes have come, first recognitions, and this will give a person self-confidence and motivation, but also a certain responsibility to do quality work.

From the beginning, these were various supports for existing projects in SAP, later cooperation in the development of projects, until one worked out to the state where he solved projects independently, or with the project team. We are currently working on mobile applications with a link to the SAP backend, sometimes solving some support, or programming an SAP transaction tailored to the customer. Sometimes, when I have an idea for an interesting project, I feel the support of the employer and I can also get creative with colleagues within an internal project.

Now, after 15 years working for FPT as a senior ABAP Developer, I can say that I do not regret my decision to join FPT. I met some interesting people. I am satisfied because I have learned interesting things, because because I have a job that makes me happy, and I even have the challenges of "Ich lerne immer noch Deutsch" ahead of me. I am satisfied because the work of the ABAP developer is still interesting and in demand in the world.
