Working at ENGINEERING - Much more than just a job

Stephan Prinner

Managing Consultant

 “The current challenges need innovative solutions and great cooperation. 

ENGINEERING brings together the right people to be able to solve these challenges.”

What are your tasks?

My main task is to work on customer projects as the first point of contact for the customer. Mostly in a managerial role and the management of my own directly assigned employees.

The customer projects are mainly in the large banking environment, where I am involved in all project phases such as planning, analysis, conception, testing and go live.

A highlight of my project experience was the development of a test automation. The test automation was built on a greenfield site and included several thousand test cases when it went live.

Another exciting project I am currently involved in is the transfer of banks’ IT systems. Processes are being rebuilt and then approx. 7 million customers are being migrated into the systems.

What do you like about your work?

What I like most about my work as a Managing Consultant is that you don’t work too long on one specific task, but that the tasks are varied and challenging every day.

I also like working with clients and colleagues and that I act as an interface between the specialist department and IT. This way, I am involved in important topics such as digitalisation every day.

What brought you to ENGINEERING?

I have been with ENGINEERING for seven years. My supervisor at the time, Karin Förster Feick, found me on Xing. She contacted me and convinced me to switch from my old employer, a bank, to the consulting sector. The new challenge came in handy for me, as pure consulting in a branch of the bank was not enough for me. I wanted to see more and develop myself further.

The step into consulting was exactly the right one for me.

What do you particularly like about ENGINEERING?

I particularly like the cooperation among the colleagues and the great cohesion within the teams. I also see great potential in our Italian parent company. But I also really like the current process of change from many small companies to one big “One ENGINEERING” and the many exciting projects at Germany’s largest banks.

What additional ENGINEERING offers can you recommend?

I am part of the “Project Management” community, in which we regularly exchange ideas with colleagues from various fields on current topics related to project management. The exciting thing about it is that we always find that everyone has to deal with the same challenges. I also find such communities helpful for internal involvement, networking and realisation.

During my time at ENGINEERING, I have also worked as a trainer for our own project management training courses on the topic of project controlling. There I introduced the participants to the topic of project controlling.
