    An Incredible Opportunity

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsCoworkers are incredible, workplace is great, and the project you are given is interesting. Definitely a great place to work.

    ConsCan be stressful. You start off somewhat in a trial by fire. At least at the start, they expect you to be able to hit the ground running. If you can keep up, you'll do great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that your incoming staff is already overwhelmed. Try to ease them in appropriately. They will remember it, and be very appreciative.
