Senior economists generally work in office environments and spend the majority of their time at a desk with limited movement throughout the day. They are generally responsible for helping to develop positions on various policies and analyzing and researching topics of interest to their companies.
They must be able to anticipate possible scenarios and events which may affect their companies and analyze courses of action to take. They may be asked to prepare write-ups from time to time which detail their findings and present this information to executive employees. Senior economists work closely with chief economists, as well as other departments such as communications, to develop plans and ideas. They may also be required to manage some employees, particularly economists which work underneath them. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
