Statistician Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Statistician?

Statistician in Bloomington:
"Plain in the plains."
Pros: Close to home
Cons: Boring place

Statistician:
It's great. Relaxed and low stress environment (in my position). Requests tend to be reasonable and achievable (in my position). I am given the tools to accomplish what is expected of me (in my position). Pay is really good for the area in general. It is a large company though. You have to be okay with being a COG in the machine. Also, management and HR are not allowed to quickly promote high achieving people. There are very rigid rules for advancement, and the only way to skip steps is to take a job that has a high turnover rate. That being said, there are far worse places to be.

Statistician in Nashville:
"Better than Silicon Valley."
Pros: Light traffic, affordable, city has all the amenities of a larger city like SF or ATL. However, they are easily accessible. Anything someone wants to do, outdoors, indoors, wine tasting, music, theater, bars, just going for a drive is right here. Most importantly, it is a great place to raise a family.
Cons: Stress induced camaraderie. Silicon Valley is a great place to make friends at work as you suffer together at your job. You bond in a special way with people there. That type of bond and friendship does not develop here in Nashville.

Statistician in Bethesda:
"Corporate culture, work flexibility, office."
Pros: Nice colleagues.
Cons:
