smaller is better
Project Database Analyst (Former Employee) –  Oakland, CA27 August 2013
After over 20 years, I knew the work routines and how to deal with them. A typical day would entail me determining what projects had reports due out soon and how to assist the groups responsible for different parts of the projects. I created data views for the graphics guys so that they could get current data from our SQL Server database. I also assisted other users in retrieving data necessary for their reports using a front-end application developed using Microsoft Access.

Since I wore different hats in my time at the company, some managers had trouble seeing all that I was able to do. Some people only knew me as the guy who created CAD maps, forgetting that I also did field geology and geophysics.

The best part was learning new things, which is why I transitioned from geophysics to CAD to database management.

My co-workers were mostly smart, outdoors oriented people and I enjoyed spending time with them, even when it wasn't work related.

As the company got bigger though, the fun environment slowly changed to one that was less personal.
Pros
collegial staff, long term relationships with co-workers
Cons
time was managed to the quarter hour. Almost all time had to be chargeable to a client..
