LMS Specialist (Current Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: the pay is good
Cons: career advancement is hard to come by
The Bank is a very much learning and result oriented place. On a typical day I would train one or two course administrators as these individuals are responsible to enter information in LMS which I manage. I would troubleshoot half s dozen of online courses throughout the day. Respond to inquiries on corporate report. Discuss formally and informally implementation with our evaluation and monitoring team (mostly co-workers). The most challenging part of the job is assuring that my trainees comprehend LMS materials to avoid making errors. The most enjoyable part is reading an email saying "Thank you for your prompt response;the direction was very helpful".
