Katharina Ax works in the Controlling department at Thomas

“I love working here.”

“My department is where figures and information from all divisions of the company come together. On that basis, I compile reports for the management that help to ensure the senior executives are always up to date. In my job it’s important to understand processes and see the bigger picture – otherwise the management might set the wrong priorities. Ultimately, the management board uses our reports to decide on courses of action that will affect the entire company.

That’s a tremendous challenge, but it also means my job is very varied and absorbing. I love working here. You have a great deal of responsibility from day one, but at the same time you’re not left to fend for yourself – the support of the team is fantastic, and there’s a strong emphasis on personal development. I think the employee benefits are excellent as well. Having said that, the great working environment is definitely the main reason I enjoy working here so much.”
