Collaborative work environment
Program Analyst (Current Employee) – New Orleans, LA – June 21, 2016
Typical day at work - sending or replying to emails, small team meetings, hosting and facilitating risk meetings with our virtual project teams, preparing risk reports and graphics for project briefs, consulting project managers on their project's risks, consulting with the Business Financial Management group on the current RDT&E obligation/expenditure status of project budget, initiating purchase requests to commit funds, reporting monthly project controls, execution, new funding requirements, internal realignments, burn rates, and funding gaps.
What I learned - that I am comfortable consulting team members across the country on all aspects of risk management, as I am the lead risk support for over 22 program projects
Senior leadership is accessible and easy to work with.
Co-workers collectively work great together as a team, cross-trained in each other's specific areas of responsibility, so as to always be able to expeditiously provide our customers what they need.
Hardest part of the job is rarely getting to meet my customers in person because we are a virtual organization.
Most enjoyable part of my job is the appreciation I receive for the support I provide and for the work products I deliver to my government customers.
Good benefits, able to work from home on occasion, great relationships with both senior leadership, customers, and co-workers
Contracts end when the work is complete
