Costa Argirellis celebrates his 13 years at Genesis IT!
We sat down with Costa and asked him about his experience here.
What has your experience been like at Genesis?
After 13 years with one company you have to love where you are. It allows you to take the ups and downs of the job in your stride. The team here really are a team and they help you in this respect. Genesis also offer learning and development which has helped me become the recruiter I am today.
What was the moment you knew you’d made the right decision to work here?
It was the support, encouragement and motivation that I received from my manager that told me I had made the right decision to work here. Also, the team mentality, we are all in it together and want to keep improving.
What’s something that happened that can only happen here?
Balance. I’ve worked really hard but also, I’ve been allowed to ‘breathe’. There’s no micro management and you are really allowed to get on with the job. Yes, there are targets but I personally thrive on these and reaching my first $1m in billings was a target I set when I joined the company (which I reached!). You are encouraged rather than managed and that really helps!
What was your best day at work?
It has to be celebrating what we’ve achieved as a company. There’s no better feeling than going on our quota trips. I’d say the first one was my best day at work (we went to Noosa!). Over the years we’ve been to many places including Vanuatu, Fiji and Hamilton Island. I haven’t missed one ever and don’t intend to!!
What do you most like about working at the company?
It’s the culture, its all very straight forward. We know what we need to do and we have a lot of fun doing it. There are no ego’s here and we are all very open with each other. I love that, it means you can really be who you are. You really do have the potential to grow!
What is your favourite success story?
I’ve really focused on one area of technology in terms of recruitment. I don’t spread myself too thinly and with SAP I have worked with many candidates all around the world. People have left Australia to follow SAP work and as soon as they are back they phone me straight away. I love that. It’s all about trying to connect and help people.
