Finance Analyst Reviews

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

Finance Analyst in Seattle:
"Beautiful City for Cold People."
Pros: The unreal surrounding landscape, the art tucked into every corner, and the obsession with creating comfy indoor spaces to escape the weather.
Cons: This is a place where introverts thrive, but that widespread shyness can feel hostile when you cram so many introverts into one port city. People transplanting from the east coast can find it difficult to adjust, but in time I think we learn to embrace our own introversion.

Finance Analyst in Everett:
"Good Job."
Pros: I like building airplanes. THey take you places.
Cons: Lack of accountability to any plan/schedule.
