Senior Business Analyst Reviews

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

Senior Business Analyst:
Management is entirely out of touch and continues to demand significantly more out of everyone while not increasing pay and cutting benefits. We are cutting costs to the point where we don’t have enough material to meet customer demand, so revenue is suffering. Bonuses are always paid even when originally stated objectives are not actually achieved (upper and middle management restates objectives at the end of year and magically the new objectives are met so bonuses are paid). If you are (1) first and foremost an engineer, (2) willing to move anywhere in the world, and (3) don’t care about wasting time and resources then you’ll probably do fine, except for the pay.
