“Butterflies in the stomach" is a euphemism for what I felt on my first day. The induction was no less than a beautiful experience and ever since the joining, everyone’s constant support has made me feel utterly comfortable and the transition got so easier. Since then, everyday has been like a wonderful ride where I learn new things and am looking forward to what's more to come
Senior Research Associate
You know you’ve been lucky to be a part of an organization, when your first day at work doesn’t seem like it. The on-boarding was as smooth as it could get. Everyone was so welcoming and shared their wisdom and experiences that made me feel very comfortable and at the same time very excited about my journey ahead with Athena. The induction was the most fun and it gave me an opportunity to gel with everyone and to get to know the organization better. In line with the training modules and the hands-on at the work so early in my tenure - I feel more confident about myself and am looking forward to an extraordinary ride ahead!!
In this short stint with Athena, it has been a great and unique learning experience altogether. Be it the nervous first day or the scary first assignment, Athenians have always been there to the rescue. The workplace is the perfect amalgamation of dedicated hard work and enjoyment at Athena. The lunch table is the right place to be at for the understanding the real essence of the company cum family. The beautiful office space with all the lively colleagues bring in so much positivity. The induction was something offbeat and unexpected, and it was overwhelming in so many senses. Never expected such a warm welcome to the corporate world. Thankyou Athena for making this transition from 'College to Corporate' a smooth affair.
The journey at Athena so far has been nothing short of a dream. My first step into the "corporate life" broke all the pre-conceived notions of a typical 9-5 work day & brought with it a wonderful mix of accountability, gratitude and warmth. Being virtually onboarded to a new environment is never an easy task but the team at Athena made sure that I had smooth and hands-on training sessions. After three months of working from home, joining office & meeting everyone in person brought with it a whirlwind of emotions. The fun induction ceremonies allowed me to break through my shell and connect with the team in a holistic manner.
I am looking forward to growing in such a dynamic environment and developing a long term association with Athena!
My association with Athena is proving to be one of the most consequential decisions of my life and has helped me evolve significantly.
I have been associated with the company for a couple months now, and so far this journey has been wonderful. I came here as a fresher, striving to widen the horizons and test my potential. The organization has given me an opportunity to learn, develop, hone my skills of networking, Communication and interpersonal skills. The work culture here is extremely friendly & helpful.
I strongly feel that my learning curve will only grow upwards & towards the positivity!
