Freedom and Candor at the Workplace

  When I sat down to write this article, the question on my mind was ‘What is the thing that I most enjoy at my work? It sent me down a trail of thought on my experience with Adtech and its product team in the last 6 months. Starting as an intern in the newly formed product team, I evolved to become the product manager for the new product that our organization is launching. This journey involved a lot of learning and unlearning, thinking and building. Nevertheless, the question of what is the thing that I enjoy at my work was still stuck with me.
