A challenged organization where I have learned through 9 years to be productive and delivered projects upon customer satisfaction and within KPI's (scope, time and budget).
The hardest part was changing IT management, where you need to keep proving yourself every time.

We use to have three shifts in which you have to work on rata basis the work was very challenging as in for local currency payments we have to finish it before the cutoff time to avoid penalties.
i have learned a lot from my seniors about the routing of foreign payments.

Management was good to the employees.

Co-workers was like a friend to me as we always worked as a team.

The hardest part of the job was to segregate the work as there were outgoing and also incoming payments.so we had to finish it within the time frame.
