"I love being an Analyst because it gives me the opportunity to talk to Business, look into the Systems and do analysis. These are key responsibilities and anyone working in Data Warehousing should have these. I love the challenges that come along with the job like data discovery, analyzing unstructured data, thinking out of the box to implement solutions, decision making. I think being an Analyst is great. I can't think of anything that I hate about being an Analyst."

Analyst at Asurion
in Nashville, TN

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"High stress, high reward. High learning opportunities."

What do you like about working at Asurion?

"Asurion's IT moves really, really fast. Many say Asurion years are equivalent to dog years. There is no vacation policy - you take off when you're able if your manager is okay with it. There are plenty of learning opportunities and freedom if you actively pursue these things. It is very high stress due to the speed but high pay. You get to wear many hats - I'm the product manager, project manager, business analyst, developer, administrator, and operator for three products."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Show that you are driven, that you are not a yes-man, and that you are comfortable in a flexible, high-speed environment. I was hired because I demonstrated that I taught myself whatever I needed to know and took the initiative to do things correctly and completely."

What don't you like about working at Asurion?

"Nashville is terrible. The stress can really get to you if you do not manage it. Due to the speed, there is often a lack of focus. The business and IT management change goals frequently in attempts to keep up with customers. Due to the speed and lack of focus, personnel aren't given the time they need to keep the environment stable."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Get more headcount. The speed is fine, but to get the environment stable, more personnel are needed."

"Don not apply for any IT position unless you want your career to stagnate."

The management by intimidation stifles the desire to put forth any creative efforts."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Change the management style culture, not all of your employees live in the county where you are the only employer."
