We asked Aseem about his journey to EDA, and what his thoughts are on EDA's culture.
What did you do before your time at EDA?
Before I was with EDA, I was an Architect. I worked to transform building concepts into habitable spaces. With an inclination towards the hospitality industry, my projects varied from commercial resorts to correctional facilities.
What brought you to the construction industry?
I grew up with a fascination of Lego blocks. I realized that buildings are blocks of dreams and the means to progress. With time, I graduated with my architecture degree and started designing spaces. I get immense satisfaction in bringing 'more humane' services to habitable spaces.
What was your reaction to seeing EDA's emphasis on culture?
The culture here at EDA is cultivated. The impact of EDA's emphasis on culture is evident and can be easily sensed with the positive mindset of co-workers and the support of our CEO Ed DeAngelis. I embrace this as an opportunity to concentrate and tailor my work habits to be an influential team member while devoting time towards community development, i.e., focus on work and people.
How is EDA's culture compared to that of your previous workplaces?
I have realized that EDA's culture revolves around inclusion and meaningful relationships. There are ample opportunities here to contribute and grow professionally and personally. I feel empowered and privileged to be a part of the EDA family while making a difference. This has been a new experience and one which I seldom experienced earlier.
What has been the best part about your experience working with EDA?
In gist, the feeling of 'Never pause on being amazed'. There is always so much happening around in the ever-evolving workplace. I need to invent a time-machine soon!
What is your favorite EDA value, and why?
My favorite values are 'Work Proud' and 'Strive to Improve'. It's prudent to be aware of upcoming concepts and confidently base our actions on tested processes (with a flare of creativity).
