What our employees say about CDQ

Xiao Chen

Joining CDQ a few months ago was a very easy decision, because everyone I spoke with was so welcoming! Today, I know it was not “just recruiting” – I do get to work with really supportive colleagues in a highly energizing environment every day. The portfolio of projects spans a wide range of subjects and allows me to continuously learn and develop myself. Even in client interactions I can sense that we have a trusted relationship because they have been jointly achieving great results with CDQ for many years. This to me is a true testimony of positive company culture!

CDQ is a family of experts. In a family, people trust each other, walk together, share their successes and failures, support each other in self-development and help to get on the right track after going in the wrong direction. All of that I have experienced in CDQ on my continuous, never-ending way of becoming an expert in my professional field.
