Pretty Good Jumping Off Point
Application Analyst (Current Employee) – Farmington, CT – October 11, 2018
Enjoy the people I work with, take pride in the support provided to users. May be recognized by management, but not monetarily or advancement. Great place to work if you have a wide range of capabilities or want to learn a lot, if you express the willingness to learn, just about anyone is willing to teach you. The culture is great at most levels, some other levels/departments are resistant to change or use it only when it suits their needs. Benefits are actually amazing. Regularly finding challenging work that is "approved" can be a difficult task at times, other times it can be very fast paced and complex. Hardest part of the job is sometimes it can be thankless and can end up working over 40 hours in a week quite easily if you let yourself. The most enjoyable part of the job is solving large problems, the challenging work assigned can really make you critically/analytically think about the solution, most people are open to teaching/mentoring and most people you encounter are kind and caring and do follow the mission and culture of the organization as a whole. If applicable, you are usually able to work remote one day a week.

Micromanagement does happen, you can be doing well/advancing one year then feel absolutely stuck
