Pros: Work life balance
Cons: No opportunity to advance in the team as people stick around for a long timeeam
I manage a great team of Business Analysts who have very different backgrounds, education and skill levels. I take pride in the culture we have created in our team that also follows the overall culture at TD: respectuful, helpful, professional and understanding.
I also enjoy what I do which is delivery of technology concept estimates for business requirements I receive from various business partners.
I can't say I have a typical day at work; however, I am usually running from meeting to meeting and trying to get things done in between.
I have been very lucky to have had very good people and projects managers in my life and I strive to be that good manager to the team I lead.
I also take pride in the estimates I create and always ensure they are as accurate as they can be with all the known requirements.
Hardest part of my job right now is the review process that we're trying to define and it's been causing some delay in delivery of our estimates, but I know it's temporary as we're working through the kinks at the moment and have a solution in mind.
