Q: What is it like working as a Data Scientist, IT?

Data Scientist, IT in Minneapolis:
"Start-Up Work at Established Company."
Pros: I am challenged nearly everyday to do something different or extend my abilities. I have a fantastic driven boss that gets me interesting projects and shields me from mundane/difficult tasks and people. The company I work for is undergoing a data revolution and I am apart of the vanguard of this area.
Cons: I had to live in a desolate and backwards area when I started. I began under a different role in the company but was transitioned to a more important role without much consultation as to what I was gaining from the move. I am underpaid for the work I am doing and the responsibilities that I bear.
