"Good Place To Work."

Data Analyst in Nashville:
"Being A Data Analyst Is Too Narrow For Responsibilities."
Pros: I enjoy working with multiple technologies, both communicating progress and where a project is at and getting into the meat of TSQL and other database languages.
Cons: You will not be appreciated for all the multiple hats you will have to wear. Often I find myself leading discussion with clients and brokers that go far beyond a technical mindset.
