Not limited by the Business Analyst role. Took the lead when the opportunity presented itself and led projects through to successful completion. I functioned in a analyst, project management and market manager roles. Worked with external clients (huge hotel chains and channel managers, Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, DerbySoft, HBSi, Disney, MGM Grand, to name a few) as the liaison. Managed projects using the Agile methodology - creating the project, adding and managing stories, facilitating SCRUM meetings and end of iteration demos.
In Travelocity I learned about web applications, SEO, floodlight tagging, cookies, marketing and driving traffic to the website.
Hardest part of the job was the work/life balance - there wasn't any - a typical work week was at least 60 hours.
Most enjoyable part of the job was my co-workers whether in Pennsylvania or local - we had a good time through stressful situations.
Management is non communicative - current management. Previous management was wonderful - transparent and let us know what was happening and would always keep us in the know.
