Pros: bonuses, healthcare, education reimbursement, fitness center on-site
Cons: job security
A typical day at work required a traditional program management skill set, account management activities and internal & external progress reporting of projects, change requests, product deployments, software releases, network changes and after action reviews.
I was able to be in a position to work with a cross-functional team of functional groups I hadn't previously worked with in my work experience. Thus, I have developed a better understanding of functional resources across the corporation.
Co-workers within my PMO team understood the need for standardization of procedures, reporting content, and sharing functional resources.
The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work across the corporation while getting to be the relationship manager with the account executives.
