Mariska Ernes-Jeurissen, business consultant
"I see it as an advantage to work in a man's world. I only have two female colleagues on my team and the rest are male. Wonderfully uncomplicated. With men, it's mostly what you see is what you get. If something happens, you talk it out. Shoulder against the wheel, and forgive and forget. This often works differently with women: that’s something I noticed in my first job where I was in a team with women only. They're more likely to take things personally and never forget anything.
More importantly than the 'male-female issue', we have a very close-knit team. People of different ages, with different experience and backgrounds in IT and Finance. I like the broad palette, being able to go in any direction, working with different people. I find all of that here.
