Setup Configuration Analyst

Setup Configuration Analyst (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Hewitt Associates full-time for more than 3 years

ProsNot much to say as far as Pros go. All their software is proprietary and doesn't allow for much transfer of knowledge to other companies.

ConsWhere to begin...

Low pay and benefits aren't very good.

Again, all software is proprietary and doesn't allow for transfer to other jobs.

Nonexistent training. The Systems Analyst for your team is supposed to train each new employee, but their workload is normally so overwhelming they don't have much time to train.

It's basically a sweatshop without much room for growth.

If you want to work at one company your entire career with little opportunity this is the company for you. If not, keep looking!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It pays the bills. Big learning curve needed to understand all of the tools.

Setup Configuration Analyst (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at Hewitt Associates full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe benefits aren't bad. If you are engaged and committed, you can move up the ladder at your pace. They are a good stepping stone to working for other companies.

ConsTedious processes. The pay is not the greatest.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease incentives to help reduce turnover. When adding additional steps to processes, also think about was to reduce steps in processes. Strive to make processes more efficient as possible.
