Drexel University

I just graduated from Drexel University, Philadelphia. I have majored in Business Analytics. I have had experience working as a data and product analyst at PJM Interconnection LLC, Oracle and Accenture. I have a wide skill set which include SQL, Python, R and Tableau. The experience has not only enhanced my skill sets but also allowed me to improve my ability to work with various teams and people from all over the world. I need help with referral. I want to work in technology and consulting

    Pros

    Drexel really has wonderful people working there and amazing students. There is much to be learned from being around such a range of dynamic people and the benefits are pretty great.

    Cons

    Drexel systemically does not pay very well. Like most universities, it is very hierarchical and places more emphasis on degree and pedigree than on actual skills and talent. As a result, they often lose out on good people because they choose to maintain patriarchal, outdated systems and structures. While they profess values of equity and diversity, their practices, and where and in whom they invest, tells a very different story.
