I met all expectations for the 2016 year. I assisted with coming up with benchmarks, deal pricing and RFP pricing. A typical day would start with me answering queries, normally form the day before pertaining to pricing being loaded or simple calculations. At 11:00 to 13:00 I would attend meeting and from 13:00 to the end of the day I deal with more strategic things (i.e. revenue leakage products, analysis and etc). I have a great working relationship with my collegues, you would usually find us craxking jokes about events that have occured. They are my first point of contact when deal with pricing issues outside of my scope

Pros: Get to know pricing across the whole board
Cons: 24 hours is never enough sometimes

Great exposure, pressurised moments, demanding and often rewarding
