The atmosphere at ConfluCore is relaxed but professional. I enjoy the flexibility of working around various projects in the spacious offices with beautiful views. I also love the teamwork with highly accomplished, yet modest, professionals.
As I read various documents, I am learning new theories and their corporate applications. With my experience in social sciences and English, I love gaining new perspectives in business and how to make it successful.
