During the initial two weeks, I observed and received guidance from a direct colleague, and then I took charge of working on the files independently.

It allows me to quickly identify areas for improvement, and receiving honest and constructive feedback in a friendly manner has been highly beneficial.”
Jonathan further describes the working environment at Antonius as amiable. While everyone is serious and dedicated to their work, there is always room for humor and banter. Every team member’s voice is heard, and they have the opportunity to contribute.
