When I worked at one company, there was lots of equipment that was just placed one side because no one was able to find the fault of equipment that came from manufacturer. I took it as a personal goal to find the common flaw on this equipment resulting in all the equipment been able to be sold and not just show as a loss to the company. 3 Different occasions while I held different positions at this company. The end result was over 6 figures of extra profit on equipment that had been written off.

10. Ideal company (culture and values):
A company where you feel like it is your company, a part of your family. I am not referring to going drinking for hours after work.
A company where everyone wants the best for the client so the the client always comes back, which is obviously good for the company and then is good for the staff (in most cases).
A company that does not lie to a client just to make a sale.
I believe that one must lead by example!
