QVARTZ DOGBITERS: Nils chose people over numbers

“I used to have superiors who promoted rather strict hierarchies in the workplace – something that does not resonate well with me. Also, when working on my PhD, it was usually just me sitting at the office, programming, simulating and calculating. Not much interaction with others, and very fact-based work. Many of the social aspects were underrepresented: talking to clients and meeting new people on a regular basis was something I needed to get better at”. Nils Christiansen of BÜLOW & QVARTZ in Hamburg is an industrial engineer who joined consulting because of the people aspect. He finds the interaction with clients, the quality of the work delivered and the professionalism of colleagues some of the greatest advantages to his work. As BÜLOW joined the QVARTZ civilisation, Nils experienced that he got more of everything: “We now have bigger projects, new colleagues, new clients and joint educational programmes – and all of this still without the hierarchies. That’s great”.
