Fairly Easygoing, Kind of a Double Edged Sword
Analyst (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – July 20, 2017
It is a bit different than what I expected. While we occasionally built new products and tackled needed projects, most of the work was supporting older applications we did not create. I learned that it is incredibly difficult to get people in higher ed to try something new. The management can be quite resistant to try doing things differently. On interviewing with the company, I thought I would be surrounded by people who were eager to write good code. This, unfortunately, was not the reality. The most enjoyable part of working here was working on projects that had some kind of influence in the student's success.
Relaxed pace, Many problems to work on
Management is a bit reluctant to tackle on needed projects, especially things that would help boost the school's image
