Quality Assurance Analyst Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Quality Assurance Analyst?

Quality Assurance Analyst in Three Rivers:
"Automotive Manufacturing, corporate culture, constant chaos."
Pros: Working 2nd shift, no boss hanging over my shoulder. Ability to come in late or leave early when an emergency arises without fear of negative repercussions. Being the "IT" person for my shift.
Cons: Having to be in the office every day, not having the freedom to do some of the work via home. Not enough available overtime-overtime rate. Last minute hour changes. Pay.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Los Angeles:
"Working for Trailer Park is a mixed bag."
Pros: My direct boss is great -- they advocate for us whenever they can. Lots of learning opportunities -- I've built my skill set quite a bit here, and it's been a rewarding experience. Great coworkers who are supportive. Most of the people I've met/known here have been fairly nice and welcoming.
Cons: Pay is not competitive -- HR admits they only pay about 80% of market rate. Since merging with Deep Focus, it's been a pain keeping up how things need to be done. Lack of leadership from upper management -- it's hard to tell what they would like in the future. The area where they're located is terrible -- Homeless, tourists, and people hustling you to give them money for something or other is a common occurrence. Business development leaves to be a bit desired -- we're frequently losing business for one reason or another. Which makes it frustrating for other departments who are reliant on them for getting work.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Kansas City:
"Learn as you go."
Listen to the advice of seasoned coworkers. Listen to the developers around you. Its OK to make mistakes if you learn from them. Learn the big picture along with the testing details.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Seattle:
"Follow Shewart & Deming."
Understand SPC and how to apply it with respect to services. As an example think of Project lifecycle and its phases/processes as services.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Nashville:
"Work flexibility."
Pros: Being a QA Analyst at my company opens many opportunities for growth. We have the option to branch out into more of the business side of things such as Project Management or if we want to go the other direction, development.
Cons: Sometimes it feels like Quality Assurance is not viewed as important or necessary, however without this department there would be a lot of issues overlooked.

Quality Assurance Analyst in Pensacola:
Apply critical thinking and creative thinking skills to your work. Learn and apply holistic systems thinking. Always remember there is another question to ask.

Quality Assurance Analyst in San Antonio:
Pros: I work on many different things and analyze data.
Cons: Not my desired carrer track.
