Database Analyst Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Database Analyst?

Database Analyst in Raleigh:
"A solid job, wish I wasn't a contractor."
Pros: It's a fun and challenging project I have to work on. My manager is mostly laid back and very open to ideas and criticism, and in addition very supportive and validating.
Cons: The open-endedness of being a 12 month+ or indefinite contractor is somewhat frustrating. It would be nice to know for sure if I did good work that they would hire me on permanently. But I guess that's just not the way they operate anymore.
