My Challenge

New Challenges Bring Out the Best in You

2018.05.30
Prior to joining UZABASE, I worked at RR Donnelley Sri Lanka where I joined as a trainee research associate and progressed as an analyst and a senior financial analyst. While working there, I got exposure to US SEC filings and basic analysis on financial statements. After working in the company for over 3 years, I gained comprehensive knowledge on the work and started looking for new challenging opportunities.

I moved to UZABASE in 2016, 3 months after the Sri Lanka office was established. UZABASE offered vast growth prospects being only a startup, with an open and friendly culture, and approachable managers and challenging work, which attracted me to move from my previous job.

When I joined, I found writing reports very challenging as my previous job role was only limited to financial statement analysis. While working on writing industry reports, I learned how to analyse different industries, understand key performance indicators and structure data points, and effectively present them in reports. I developed a habit of approaching every situation with logical thinking and reasoning through writing these reports.

In addition to being an analyst, I currently train new analysts, mentor and review their reports and manage and supervise a team of 9 members. This exposure is helping me improve my communication skills, social skills, management skills, and decision-making skills. What I believe is if you face any situation seemingly hard to handle, no matter how hard the challenges are, what is important is to never ever give up. These challenges bring out the best in you.

In UZABASE, people are very friendly and managers are always approachable and supportive. We always share our thoughts and opinions regardless of our position under the environment of our open and continuous learning culture. Various career opportunities are wide open at UZABASE, and if they are not the ones you are looking for, you can even create them. This environment allows us to follow our strong passion and pursue our goals.

In future, I would like to challenge myself time to time with different job roles to expand my experience more as I am motivated by the sense of accomplishment in trying out things I think I cannot achieve.
