Marwa Adlouni has had a steep learning curve since she joined NNE in late 2020 and she continues to grow every day thanks to trust and support from her colleagues. Read on to get her reflections from her first year at NNE.
Before joining NNE, I had been in the pharma industry less than three years, but I wanted to do something more challenging. I knew NNE already and thought about using my skills in the company as they did some really exciting things like working on big and complex projects that contribute to new and optimized pharma manufacturing worldwide. I wanted to be part of that so when NNE looked for a new colleague for its validation department, I applied.
Network and trust from day one
My first impression coming to NNE was that the onboarding program is great. The program helps you to build relationships with colleagues from around the organization already from the start which means you get a broad network very fast. That means that when you join a new project you already have a network that benefits you when having to reach out for help, sparring and competent feedback when needed.
My manager trusts me to take full responsibility on challenging tasks, which contributes greatly to both my personal and professional development.
The development opportunities are another thing I have noticed. My manager trusts me to take full responsibility on challenging tasks, which contributes greatly to both my personal and professional development. For instance, as one of my first project assignments, I was thrown into an important and exciting role to ensure quality in product-critical systems for a newly build manufacturing facility for one of our biggest customers. It is a really exciting and challenging project, where I got to know a lot of new competent colleagues from across NNE who have supported my development and contributed to my very steep learning curve.
Overall, I am surprised with the level of development and how fast you learn through the opportunities you are given. That’s something that really makes work interesting for me. Also, the colleagues and the way we work together at NNE is something I really appreciate. We have so many different backgrounds and different strengths and the way we team up to achieve results… I really like that attitude. There’s a great team spirit and I know I can always ask colleagues for support or advice – or help them – so we together can achieve great results.
