    Pros

    From a business analyst perspective at the corporate offices, there are many talented, friendly and hard working individuals.

    Cons

    There has been a great deal of turnover and loss of knowledge in the BA pool over the past year leading to a lot of hard lessons for the replacement staff. The current senior management in IT Service Delivery has been unsuccessful in defining a clear and documented project management methodology. In turn, BA roles and responsibilities are painfully vague with little support or communication from project management. Further, BA resources are not hired, managed, or compensated based on experience or merit. Some seasoned Business Analysts have been hired at significantly lower wages and have greater responsibilities than some entry level Business Analysts recently hired.

    Advice to Management

    Morale among the IT Business Analysts is very low due to a lack of structure and vision from IT Service Delivery senior management. Academy executives should seriously consider acquiring new and effective senior management talent in IT before another mass exodus of BAs occurs.
