What is it like working as a Financial Analyst?
Financial Analyst in Valencia:
"Work More. For Less. Much Less. The Company Calls It "Fun""
Pros: Doing what I'm very good at doing (data analysis: financial modeling development), working with very good people (who are also VERY underpaid for what they do for the company)
Cons: Severely underpaid, but get to do what I love to do (for the first time in my life). Is that a "fair trade-off"?
