What is it like to work in Hungary?
The following is based on my experience so if you do not agree feel free to leave a comment or drop me an email. I am always interested in the experience other people have made. To start working in Hungary, and here Budapest is not an exception though very international, without Hungarian language knowledge you will need a lot of endurance and power to push through that you are a foreigner and that people around you should speak a language that everybody understands. Here usually come the first complaints “why should I speak in a foreign language in my own country?” that I was facing. Absolutely understandable if you are not working in an international environment. However these experiences you can make in multinational companies as well, they are no exception. Now it shouldn’t be your colleagues who need to change but it is you. Therefore I urge you to start learning Hungarian. It is not about speaking perfect business fluent Hungarian and understanding every single word that is spoken around you it is rather showing that you make the effort to understand you colleagues and customers. Learning Hungarian will get you a lot of credits. Still you will be facing a lot of Hungarian language around you that you are not capable to understand especially when it comes to meetings and discussions where more than one people speaks, maybe even fast and loud. My tip, find a helpful contact person around you. Even if you didn’t understand anything in that particular situation he or she will be able to help you afterwards. A contact person is also very good for any administrative stuff that you will face starting from your apartment contract to your insurance card.
