Meetings, meetings, meetings!
Senior Business Analyst - CRM and BI Development (Current Employee) – Remote – September 15, 2018
A typical day at work starts out with 3-4 meetings with our team in India to get updates on their work, answer any questions they have in preparation for their next day.
After meetings, work on business requirements, troubleshoot client-reported issues, meet with Product Managers on new feature requests.
The workplace culture, at least for us remote employees, is a sense of the work never ending! And a sense of guilt if you don't get online in the evening too, after already working a 9-10 hour day.
The hardest part of the job is juggling the workload while also needing to spend a lot of time in meetings, not to mention the periodic administrative to-do's like timesheets, compliance training, keeping up to date with the frequent changes to the SDLC standards.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the respect our team members have for each other. We have confidence that our suggestions and ideas are considered and adopted when it's determined to be the best choice.
Too many meetings, not enough time to get actual work done
