Senior Analyst

I have never experienced such a fast-paced, challenging work environment. Right from the start, I was learning the intricacies of the business and getting familiar with the tools that would allow me to efficiently face any—and every—problem. Most importantly, within a month I felt like the projects I was working on were having an immediate and tangible effect on the business.
