2 Companies I really admire and Why
I admire Google because I've been using the service for over 15 years. I've seen their value and services rise astronomically and find it quite inspirational.
I admire Amazon because of their products and services. They also treat their customers with respect — something a great company always does.
Let me tell you about ...
A year ago back in Brooklyn College I was part of a group of 5 for an advanced programming course.
The five of us had to create a program that asked a user to guess the answers to some questions and the answers to those questions would eventually be rearranged into a word.. It was difficult to be part of a team of students that had so many different ideas. Our designated group leader was having difficulty keeping organized with the assignment,
I decided to come up with my solution to the problem and asked everyone else how they wanted to work from there. We decided to split up into smaller groups, some of us worked on the user interface and others would work on the background processes.
We spent several days at the computer lab and then managed to complete our project. In the end, things came out smoothly and everyone was happy.
I look back fondly on this project because everyone got along well. Working as a team and learning to accomplish our goals step by step was a pleasant experience.
