we have had to contact no less than 4 departments of the same bank to notify a change of correspondence address on our mortgage. Regardless of fiduciary duty etc, the main problem is there are people in senior positions who still think Excel is a database...
Sounds like somewhere down the track someone's going to make a truckload implementing Information Management solutions for those sorts of organisations.
working for the government in Poland is a bad idea from financial and from personal development perspective
Absolutely, I'm not imagining that I'd be working in the Public sector in Poland. The NZ public sector is very different, generally much more corporatised and less bureaucratic in the traditional sense, so its possible to get experience which I understand to be easily transferrable to the private sector. Also I agree, I think the security requirements would be prohibitive. The only capacity I could imagine interacting with the Polish public sector is in a consultancy sort of role, but thats a fair way down the track for me. From the very basic Information Management I've encountered in my times in Poland I certainly think its going to be a growth area.
The only catch that I see is that in some positions you might have to rely on polish legal documents and in such case a language barier might be a problem.
You chose a line of work that seems to heavily depend on written word
Again, I think you are absolutely correct. I'm thinking that if I'm working in the sector in Poland it will be more system design/implementation side of things rather than working directly with the content.
