Here’s what are valued volunteers had to say about working with MCIS:

I entered to MCIS to help as a Senior Consultant for the Business Development area. When I joined MCIS, I was facing important personal and professional changes and looking for new challenges. I will never forget the warm way I was received by Latha Sukumar and the peace and hope she brought to my life. I knew from this moment that better times will come to my life and I would be able to help MCIS and myself at the same time. After spending an incredible time working for MCIS, I left the organization as a different person, with a recovered self-esteem, a positive attitude about life and career, and with a willingness to face future challenges. I found MCIS as a happy organization. There is a positive environment between managers and employees. And the most important, RESPECT is everywhere in the organization. As well, thanks to the work of Richard Brooks’s team, who has dramatically increased the volume of sales of the organization on the last years, MCIS is becoming a bigger organization. This requires strategic changes to adapt to the new environment and to the new size of the company, since bigger organization requires a different strategy from the small ones.Through my experience with MCIS, I learned that “Life is a journey of practicing tolerance, learning how to keep a peaceful mind by going through different difficult times and cultivating your character”. Thank you again for the opportunity and I will bring MCIS in my heart for the rest of my life.” — Francisco Galindo, the Winner of MCIS 2012 Volunteer of the Year.

 

It was a great honour to do my placement at MCIS from January to July, 2014. I had this great opportunity to work with such a professional and committed team and be able to contribute my knowledge and skills to support the success of MCIS. I have learned a lot of from this placement experience and I really appreciate the learning opportunity provided by MCIS.” — Wen Ma, the Winner of MCIS 2014 Volunteer of the Year.

 

“I volunteered for MCIS for six months in 2014 and it was a great experience. Since my first day, everybody was very nice to me, especially the Translation Department’s team who was very patient. I learned a lot from them and this will help me with my career as a project coordinator. Also, I had so much fun! It is a pleasure to work and learn with such great people!” — Valentina Cova, the Winner of MCIS 2014 Volunteer of the Year.
