Business Tech Analyst at Big 4 Consulting Firm

Jul 13, 2019 7 Comments

Thoughts on this role in terms of job satisfaction, compensation, perks and WLB?

Have an interview coming up with Deloitte. Graduated college last year and been working in tech. Kind of ambivalent to moving away from being super technical to less so (I assume I will still be a bit technical as Business tech analyst) since I eventually would like to move into management.

What are thoughts of people who worked as BTAs or chose to steer clear of working as BTA?

    God, not PMO. OP, avoid PMO at all costs. Kill yourself, if you have to. But avoid.

    • What is PMO? 😅

      PMO is an unfortunate position, but necessary on large projects. Try working with your manager to enrich the position by asking for additional responsibilities. Ultimately, it’s a role that unknown variables often get put into - if you prove you’re smart and can add values in other ways to the project, your role will morph away from it.

    I’m an SM at Deloitte and started as a BTA so perhaps a bias response here - 1. Anyone with technical skills is GOLD, so if you are technical and that’s what you want to do, a manager or SM would be an idiot to have u do PMO. 2. That being said ur bill rate is like 4x an offshore coder so it’s not the best value add for you nor is it the best for your career to only code all day - more likely you’ll get a module you own and be responsible for requirements and technical design to handoff to offshore for build then you’ll verify the build with testing and perhaps help troubleshoot. 3. It’s going to depend on the group that you’re in. Some groups are flush with talent and others are desperate for people. The more desperate or understaffed groups will have larger staffing opportunities.

    Ultimately you can control your career as you build a network within deloitte - I know we make it sound like a dirty word but basically you’ll get a clique of people you like running with and they’ll want to keep u happy by giving you work you like - assuming you’re good

  • Indeed *NDEED
    Many of the BTAs I knew ended up doing PMO—making slide decks and updating tracking spreadsheets. Some were able to do more technical stuff either through luck or networking.
