Great place to make breakthroughs
Research Analyst - Lead (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA – October 31, 2018
A typical workday involves communicating via email, reviewing literature and other information online, writing outlines, reviewing relationships between current practices dealing with related problems and proposed solutions to the problem at hand.
You learn whatever you want as long as it can still be used to get the job done (languages, tools, technologies, literature).
Direct supervisors check in on progress and provide some guidance regarding direction of the work, but generally leave you to implement the plan and get the work done. Slow or late delivery is met with more tasks that are smaller, sometimes slowing you down further, but also automatically course-correcting the project.
The workplace culture is uplifting, high-spirited, and requirements focused. However, it is few and far between since meetings occur once a week at most.
The most enjoyable part of the job is delivering novel solutions. It is implied that you just made something no one else has.
