Very Fast Paced - 55+ Hour Work Week
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 29, 2015
I come from a true IT background (JIRA, UML, SDLC, user stories, workflows, mockups, etc)...being a BA here is not like my previous roles, it's more of a QA/data management role. There's no organized approach to anything, you run for cover every day because you're constantly fixing issues, overwhelmed with deadlines & the project managers don't run interference between you & the client so that just adds to never ending nightmare. The culture all depends on the client and the PM relationship. Be prepared to work 55+ work week each week and it will become more during OE. They believe in happy hour, which is good because you're gonna need a drink once you the place for the day. Proceed with caution. And, we just went through another merger, so who knows what's next. The onboarding training sucks, it's 40 days worth of work crammed into 2 weeks and then you're on a client, so trying to complete your training while preparing for client meetings, etc., isn't going to happen.
