I have been associated with UFO Cine Media Network for 6 years. It's an organization where you can grow, while you are aiding its growth. New challenges like when UFO transformed from being only digital service provider to a media company offering complete bouquet of services like distribution, exhibition have given me opportunities to learn and excel.
I always wanted to work for an organization which would require me to think out of the box. As part of Digital Mastering Services division, this is exactly what I do. I have often found myself faced with challenges to optimize technologies to save time and cost for the company while ensuring better output. I have been here since the inception for 14 years now and have seen the company grow from a start-up to a major player in the market. The experiences that I have gained along the way are irreplaceable & valuable. Such challenging yet fulfilling opportunities is what makes my 14-year long relationship with UFO so special.
In my 15 years here I’ve learnt one thing, working at UFO is not like working for a company, it’s like being a part of a family. Everyone has a role to play, everyone is important. It is about the impact and the joy you bring to peoples lives. This family is giving and welcomes everyone with open arms. There is a strong force that binds all of us together and over the years we have all grown together and seen each other grow. Nobody wants to leave a place that gives great opportunity along with a strong brotherhood.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all our UFO family for providing timely assistance and financial and moral support during a medical emergency where my wife was detected with cancer in July 2019. It was a really alarming situation in my life. I was really devastated. But my company stood behind me like a rock and provided me the support I wanted in terms of money and permission to work from home. My dept. colleagues said, “You take care of your family and don’t worry about the work” and supported me in the best manner. I am really thankful to our UFO Moviez family.
My experience with the company has been wonderful and emotional from the beginning till date. In the past I have struggled with severe health issues which led to frequent leaves, making we want to quit. However, when I requested the senior management for help, not only was I given the option to work from home, but my leave was extended by an additional 3 months. This helped me to recover and support my family while doing so. I will be forever grateful to the Management and my colleagues. Growing with an organization like UFO has been an essential part of my life and it is not less than a family in itself.
Life at UFO is dynamic and encourages passion, talent and grit. Each day brings new challenges and new opportunities. My team encourages experimentation with new strategies, bringing growth and confidence. Moreover, interdepartmental working is seamless. In one such situation, team members of both departments -Caravan Talkies and I.T. not only came together to bridge the gap but also came up with innovative solutions which resulted in reducing lead time for planning and execution of the campaign. Here work and fun go hand in hand, that’s how dynamic it is to be working at UFO.
The first thing I noticed while working at UFO is how open and trusting the culture is. I have always wanted to be a part of an organization that understands the importance of supporting and investing in their people. Being the youngest member in team, I have got all the support from my colleagues & senior management to grow and dream big. This gives me immense opportunity to showcase my abilities, reaffirm myself and contribute to a growing company. It is my privilege to work in a group of very talented, motivated individuals who are ready to lend advice, share knowledge, and help me perform my best.
As a part of the engineering team, UFO gives me great exposure to a broad set of technologies across the entire product chain. We get opportunities to actively participate in architectural and design decisions. Here, working hours are quite flexible and you are also encouraged to keep learning on the go. While working on solutions for the current business needs, we @Engineering also focus on the solutions and technologies for future needs of the organization and new business areas. Every moment spent here is a learning.
