BCS team member Edyta Murzanski gives us some insight into what she loves most about her job as Senior Enterprise Risk Analyst, her Polish-American heritage, and what she wanted to be when she grows up (hint: it wasn’t risk management). Read on for more —
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: What I like most about my job is that I get to work on both the risk and audit function at BCS. I work on a variety of tasks and projects ranging from vendor management security to third-party administrator reviews. I get to work with just about every department within BCS as well as many of our third-party administrators which gives me the opportunity to connect with people that I wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity to connect with.
Q: Are you part of any teams or groups within BCS?
A: I am part of the Community Service Team at BCS. We work on various events or projects throughout the year where we team up with organizations within our surrounding communities.
Q: What was your first job?
A: My first job was at 16 years old at TCF Bank as a teller.
Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A: As a kid, I wanted to be a dentist (I couldn’t have picked a profession farther from dentistry). In high school, I started taking business classes and loved my accounting class. That’s when I knew accounting was the route I would take in college.
Q: You recently shared your heritage to BCS employees during Polish American Heritage Month. Tell us about your background and the traditions you hope to pass down.
I am first generation born in the United States. My family is from Southern Poland, near the Tarty Mountains and considered Highlander. As Highlanders we have our own traditions around music, dance, food, and even dialect. I used to dance with a Highlander competition group and I plan to get my son involved in it as well. Making sure to pass down our language is very important to me. Up until my son was 2 years old I exclusively spoke Polish to him. I would like to put him into Polish school similar to what I attended as a child on the weekends to learn the language and history of Poland. I can’t wait to take my son to Poland one day so he can see it for himself.
