Senior Financial Analyst Reviews

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

Senior Financial Analyst in New York:
Pros: Analyzing company financial statements and reporting on its financial health.
Cons: Credit reporting bureas and low level of compensation.

Senior Financial Analyst in Santa Monica:
"Stress level low, 40 hours/week, compliance analyst."
Pros: Low work stress and flexible.
Cons: Too many regulations.

Senior Financial Analyst in Indianapolis:
"Senior Financial Analysts."
You need to be able to work in a stressful environment with the ability to figure things out on your own.

Senior Financial Analyst in Seattle:
"Learn Microsoft Access with Excel, SharePoint and Tableau."
Excel on its own is no longer enough to handle the volumes of data ERPs produce for successful, clear reporting. This has been coming for a while as ERP detail becomes more important and has to be combined with data from multiple systems to get useful information. MS Access has been the wallflower of the Office Suite. Patience, courtesy and care in asking her to dance are rewarded. Nearly every financial setup has Access, already in place. Starting maximum storage is 2GB, but SQL Server or SharePoint Lists can be used as back end tables to offer much larger storage. The Visual Basic for Applications code is not the same for Excel and Access, but Excel can be controlled from within Access. Historic data stored through Access allows for meaningful comparisons in analysis and aids forecasting. Tableau is the missing link Excel and Access developers have been missing. It produces visual and tabular reports that can be filtered easily but powerfully by the viewer.

Senior Financial Analyst in Denver:
"Excellent Company For Career Growth."
Pros: Very supportive and career-nurturing organization, if you're willing to relocate for your growth. Pay for performance, flexible management, and focused on results vs. doing everything a certain way. Good benefits, bonus structure is fair, and corporate communication has improved over the few years I've been with the company.
Cons: HQ is in Boston, and many corporate/group/divisional offices are centered around this area. Many facilities scattered throughout the country and abroad, including new Life Technologies acquisition HQ in San Diego area. If you're in either area, growth opportunities abound. If you begin your career with Thermo Fisher anywhere else, be prepared for a relocation once you stagnate in your current position.

Senior Financial Analyst in San Diego:
Get internships during undergrad. Work to gain experience during undergrad.

Senior Financial Analyst in Beaverton:
"Try To Land An Internship."
One of the best pieces of advice I can give to college students is try to land an internship in your junior or senior year with an employer in the field in which you want to work. An internship makes the likelihood of having a job straight out of college much greater and also gives you the ability to determine if you want to work for an employer in a certain industry/field.
