Q: What is it like working as a Business Analyst, IT?

Business Analyst, IT:
Losing confidence in leadership. Location and flexibility are great, benefits are good, compensation is below average. Very little diversity in leadership, few women in top roles. Casual dress code and nice cafe on site are pros.

Business Analyst, IT in Miami:
"Hard work for your money for expensive simple life."
Pros: Cultural Diversity
Cons: Commute, expensive life-style

Business Analyst, IT in Philadelphia:
Pros: I've worked in several states in the US; Philadelphia, Oklahoma, California and Nevada. Out of all the states outlined I am partial to where I was born and raised Philadelphia, PA. It's the city vibe. I tend to compare every place and working environment to Philadelphia and at the end of the day Philly wins out. The second best place is California where I worked at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank CA as a research analyst and an Executive Secretary for the VP of Management Audit.
Cons: It's a hard nut to crack. It takes a while to get into the work stream. With my education with double masters I still had to start from the bottom to work myself up to a livable wage. First assignment was $10/hr over a span of 2 weeks; second assignment was $15/hr over a span of 2 months. I am currently employed on a short-term assignment as a business analyst for GSK at $22/hr. Philadelphia like most cities that I have worked in requires a lot of what you know...but who you know gets the ball rolling.
