Beth, I wish that advocate the best of luck and hope that they work in a company whose culture values dissent and change!

Matt, well, not necessarily. Somebody has be an advocate for change, and analytics professionals who find themselves in a situation in which they're not able to do their jobs effectively fit the bill. If they can't help bring about a change in infrastructure and processes, then, yes, absolutely, they should look elsewhere.

@Beth, no analyst worth their salt should be working for such a company, no? Should just be beginners who need to cut their teeth.

They should be in big big trouble --- a la the CIA during the Church hearings of the 70s, which set back that spy agency for a decade.

Anyone else think that the NSA collecting private data and full emal inboxs without the go ahead by a judge unconstitutional?

And we've certainly heard enough about the impending talent shortage to know that data scientists are in demand. However, I think the scenario I've described would not necessarily be at a company that has evolved its data & analytics infrastructures into the true "data science" realm but on the other end of the spectrum -- reallly just getting started and not yet fully "data-ified."

I would think that any disgruntled data scientist could pull up stakes at one employer and easily find work at another. Or ... are there data scientist guns for hire? Big-time experts who sell their services as contractors. Outside of academia, I mean. Must be plenty, I would think.

@Beth, understood. I would still suggest to that data analyst to work for another company or find another job.

@Matt, I was speaking more of an infrastructure/architecture issue that would be out of a data analysts time. No matter how enthusiastic a data analyst is about running query after query, if each is a huge time sink because of the wait on data, then there's good reason for frustration. By the same token, the data analysts best make sure their models aren't too complex or incapable of scaling or unable to support iterative modeling -- those are all essential for letting the business ask as many questions of the data as it would like.
