Jana used to play floorball at school, and once she graduated, she was looking for a group of girls with whom she could start to practice again. Once, while waiting for a bus, Jana saw a woman with a floorball stick. They started talking and, before Jana noticed, they were already making plans for their first match. Moreover, her new team-mate works at a company that cooperates with Mars, so they have a number of acquaintances in common. It’s amazing how small the world is.
Jana has been working in the company for 5 years. During that time, she has completed her graduate program and tried out several positions, including one year in France. She is currently leading the controlling team. Their task is to ensure the correctness of reported results from the Mars Inc. point of view as well as from the statutory one where all financial documentation must comply with the laws of the given country. The team prepares regular financial balances, documents for audits, tax returns and provides the entire central office with financial data which is then used to perform analyses and make decisions.
In the team, everybody is very close. All sit together in one part of the open office and go for lunch together almost every day. Overall, they get along very well and have a lot in common. Jana and a couple of colleagues occasionally go out together for dinner or a drink on Friday and sometimes even on a weekend trip.
