Interview

Magdalena Pyka

Trainee 2012-2014 Kapsch TrafficCom AG



My trainee station within KTC Argentina was a great professional and personal challenge. I worked in the finance & administration department and was mainly responsible for preparations as well as supporting the implementation of the new ERP system, which included: financial process adaptations, new financial process design, constant communication between headquarter and subsidiary as well as understanding of headquarter requirements, local needs and limitations.

Additionally I supported the Controlling team in budget planning, monthly reporting, invoicing and all other daily ad-hoc tasks. Additionally, beside all those responsibilities I was able to improve my Spanish, learn a lot about Argentinian culture and make new friends it, but also outside the office.

When I put on “subsidiary glasses” the reality looked totally different to that one in the headquarter. These experiences helped me to understand the headquarter to subsidiary relations and gave me a new professional perspective. It showed me how important the proper intercompany communication is and gave me an idea what we could do differently in the future.

Working at KTC Argentina in a beautiful Buenos Aires was a great adventure and I’m glad that my supervisors gave me a chance to participate in such a challenging project! … and I would love to do it again!
