    Laid back enviornment

    Analyst (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

    ProsPay is descent, benefits medium, good life and work balance allowance.

    ConsMany team members are overworked and underpaid. Work assignments change frequently for hourly team members.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to team members feedback, good/bad or indifferent.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Overall decent first job

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsProject depending, there can be a lot of flexibility and, given that this is a large company, lateral mobility is possible. Team size varies but the small teams are vey tight-knit and is a nice transition from a collegiate atmosphere.

    ConsRecruiters can be misleading and the business analyst position job description is wildly vague. Moreover, the actual role can vary drastically and it is near impossibly for a new graduate to anticipate what he/she will actually do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransparency regarding job descriptions and roles maybe lessen high turnover rate.
