Sr Analyst Advanced Business Analytics

June - August 2022 • Charlotte, NC

What I liked

I liked that my opportunity to work with cross-functional teams and I gained exposure to the other data applications during the problem solving process. This further also helped me to understand the importance of verbal and written communication skills. My role involved process improvement using data analytics and data mining. Use of Celonis application to design process flow and automate processes using Microsoft Power Automate and other system tools. It also involves developing data models, structure guidance, and hands-on support to generate positive value for process owners. My ability to analyze a problem well and solve it was greatly refined through the varied opportunities I had at work.

What I wish was different

I was hands-on on projects from Day 1 without much guidance, this helped me to learn from the start but having a structured internship induction program could be more effective.

Advice

My experience at Ally Financial was very rewarding and it would not have been possible without the knowledge that I have gained through my professors and curriculum at UNT. The conceptual knowledge that I gained from subjects like Data Mining, Predictive Analytics and Programming for BA amongst others helped me in performing my day to day work during my internship and it has helped me with a steep learning curve and has prepared me for my future endeavors.

Human Resources Intern

May 2021 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved the project I was put on and the opportunities to get to know the other interns! Ally did a great job of keeping the interns in a close network to we can share experiences and ask questions or concerns if needed. The internship managers made sure every intern was given all materials and support they needed to succeed.

What I wish was different

I wish it had been in person but there was little to no control with that. They did a great job of ensuring the remote option was still effective and enjoyable for all. We had many lunch and learns that mimicked the feeling of being with everyone in the office.

Advice

I would recommend that you put meetings on anyones calendars and really grow your network. There is so much opportunity to experience the other areas in Ally if you put in the work to do so.
