I worked at Crossix Solutions Inc. full-time (Less than a year)
-Work hard, play hard culture
-Young start-up feel
-Regular social activities like happy hours, monthly birthday celebrations, holiday parties
- High level of responsibility and self-direction
-Solid pay, though similar positions elsewhere pay more for less demanding schedules
-Flexible vacation days
-Huge gap between externally hired managers who don't understand how the analytics works vs. the analysts who struggle to make sense of the data
- Extremely high turnover rate; the NY office lost about 1-3 people per month. Usually these are analysts or lead analysts who found better jobs.
-The approach to data analysis is totally unique to Crossix. 5 full weeks of 9am-5pm training for new hires is not nearly enough to understand how to run an analysis. Most analysts don't get the hang of things until ~6 months of work.
- Analysts do the vast majority of the work in the company, but it differs a lot by team. The analyst on my team regularly worked 9am-8pm most days, and she was an excellent analyst. An analyst who was worse at her job on another team would work 10am-6pm most days. It's expected that most analysts work a ton, including weekends, to get things done right.
- Knowledge is not shared well. Teams constantly find new analytical approaches and best practices, but it could take months before the entire company catches on. Communication between teams is lacking.
- Healthcare marketing data analytics is a very specific field, and although it's a solid first job for reasons like pay and front-line responsibility and culture, it's difficult to move on to something new (and you'll want to move on after about a year)
- The sales team doesn't interact enough with client services, meaning they are signing a ton of projects even though CS can barely support the existing workload. Expect analysts to work even more in the future.
Advice to Management
-Stop hiring so many external people for higher-up positions - it takes years to master Crossix analytics
- Consider paying overtime, or at least logging it, so managers understand how hard some of the analysts work
- Find a better way to communicate best practices to the company
- Rather than hire more sales guys and sign contracts for things we may not have capacity to deliver on, focus on producing higher quality deliverables for existing clients.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Crossix Solutions Inc. in March 2017.
On campus interview for the first round with all behavioral questions, nothing too hard. Second and final round in person, met with 6 different people and took and Excel/SQL test and Marketing Case study.
