Company has been great but need challenges.
SR BI Analyst (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – August 27, 2015
A typical work day now is project management, reviewing what's on the pipeline, business requirements, prioritizing business critical reporting needs, meeting with senior leadership to align on specifications, and building the reports using Excel, BOBJ, SAP/BEX, new Queries, Access, SQL, etc.
I've learned how to focus on projects which can require 8-14 days of building and meeting/exceeding the self imposed deadline. I've grown my SAP and BOBJ knowledge as well as honing my excel skills.
The most difficult part of my current role is getting alignment between senior leadership, planning, and allocation. Often times, they all want the same thing but a different way of looking at it. During those times, we just have to get together in a room, lay out the pros and cons of what they're looking for, and walk out of the room with a finalized alignment.
Project management., Ability to work autonomously yet collaborate with planning., Love dabbling in planning when I can!
I want to plan a lot, I miss the role and function, the decision making etc. Unfortunately, I love this role too and I can't do both at Chico's.
