Various environment with people from any country of the world
IT consultant in LAN/WAN team (Dipendente attuale) – Roma, LAZ – 13 giugno 2014
The environment is absolutely unique, with people from any country of the world working in the same building, thus letting you widen your horizons. In my division we have to support the network connectivity for over 400 offices, scattered everywhere but in particular in Africa, Middle East and South America. That is quite hard when issues come up simultaneously in more offices, and the troubleshooting involves also third parties like for example satellite or MPLS internet providers. I learned to deal with stress and people asking for help from anywhere.
I have just finished being involved in the Foodlink Project, which aims to improving the networks and IT resources in the over 400 offices all over the world. In particular, I dealt with the rollout of the new firewall in all the country offices, often working in emergencies and with people with any culture, background and education.
Also, working for the UN my net pay matches my gross pay, for international agreements, so I don't pay taxes
I am still a consultant, so my benefits are limited
