Fast-paced sales environment
Sales Analyst (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – October 15, 2014
My experience has been in the Accounting/Finance department. A typical work day is spent almost exclusively using Excel and Access, with a little bit of FAMis thrown in. As a vast majority of the work we do is manual and not automated, I have certainly improved on my Excel skills since I started here 4 years ago.
For me, the most enjoyable part of my job is being able to solve problems, find anomalies, and pull data that will support the sales team and the executive team. It is a very open environment which makes it very easy to just walk over to anyone you need to find to solve a problem instead of spending days playing phone tag.
The hardest part of my job is prioritizing duties effectively with very little input from management. Along with that, it is very easy to be pulled in several directions at once; being able to get several very different projects done in a timely manner in a logical prioritization can be challenging.
Occasional free food/lunches, especially in September
No flexible hours (8:30-5:30 ONLY), and no telecommuting policy
