Each week, Continuum spotlights an employee who has gone above and beyond. The spotlight is more than just recognition of the hard work being done at Continuum, but a look into the person behind that work. We find out what our employees do for fun, what their favorite movies are, what their passions are and much more. We also ask them about their experiences working at Continuum and what they like most about their job. Check back each week to find out who made the Employee Spotlight.
This week Prathmesh Ajgaonkar is being featured!
Prathmesh is a NOC L1 Technical Engineer working in our Mumbai office.
Let's get to know Prathmesh a little better...
What is your favorite thing about working for Continuum? "The best part of working for Continuum is how all the teams come together to solve an issue. Continuum is like a family and the fun we have on the floor keeps you away from stress."
What is your best memory as a Continuum employee? "Although there are a lot of stories to choose from but if I had to choose one it would surely be when I won the Star Performer Award. What made it even more special is that I was fairly new to the team and this award encouraged me to a great extent."
What is one skill that you have acquired since starting at Continuum?"As this is my first job the one skill I gained was confidence. Working in a corporate environment changes your mindset in a way that it never was before."
Do you have any fun/funny stories that involve any of your co-workers?"PST is a fun loving team and we celebrate every festival with great enthusiasm and jubilation. We have a dress code, we order food and its always a euphoric occasion. Another fun story would be the time we had during our training period. These events help you know your colleagues in a better way and helps you in working as a team."
What do you look for in a good company? "A good company can only be good for an employee if you have a good manager. When the manager helps you grow the working environment automatically becomes comforting."
Would you recommend applying to Continuum to a friend? "Sure, in fact I already have 3 of my college buddies who joined Continuum after me."
What is an interesting fact about yourself "I have a great sense of humor, me and couple of my teammates pull out pranks on others. Obviously, the pranks are not offensive but these moments refresh us during working hours."
What is your favorite movie? "If there is one movie in Bollywood that redefines friendship goals it has to be "Zindagi naa milegi dobara". There are lot of Hollywood movies that are really great but the direction, writing and music of this movie makes it the best."
What is your favorite TV show? "'Suits' has always been special for me. This show really shows how one must carry himself and inspires you to have a really profession attitude. The show is persuasive and stimulating."
What do you like to do for fun? "I love watching and playing cricket. Like most of the Indians hold a special place for cricket in their heart, I am no exception. Also I love Sketching. Although, I do it as a hobby I am pretty good at it."
What is your hidden talent "According to few of my friends I am a pretty decent singer. That's all I can say."
Do you have any pets? What are their names? "No pets."
What is your favorite animal? "Lion is my favorite animal. Do I have to say more?"
What kind of music do you like to listen to? "I love listening to Bollywood movie songs especially slow tracks, ghazals, etc."
Do you play any instruments? "I am trying to learn guitar but I have a long way to go."
Do you follow/play any sports? If so, which teams/sports?"Cricket is my favorite sport, whether it may be watching or playing I am always ready for a game."
If you could travel anywhere on earth for vacation, where would you go? "I would love to see all of India before anything else but apart from it, I would love to visit Europe. The architecture never misses to amaze me."
If you could have any super power, what would it be and why? "Malhari from Bajirao Mastani. The energy that the song brings makes even the dullest of us to dance."
