Interview With Lori Bluemel, Business Analyst

For our Computronix employee interviews, we sit down with people from all levels of our company and ask them about their jobs, and what it’s like working for Computronix.


When starting any new job, there’s a learning curve involved in becoming familiar with the company, with your new position, and learning where or who to go to for help. To understand how Computronix tries to make this transition as smooth as possible, we spoke to Lori Bluemel three months into working for Computronix as a Senior Business Analyst – just long enough to have caught up with the learning curve, but still have the transition process fresh in her mind.


She says that there were two main reasons why she chose to join Computronix. The first is because the company’s needs lined up extremely well with her skills and experiences. She has an extensive background in both the government and technology industries, making it very much a win-win partnership between her and Computronix. The second is that two longtime colleagues and friends of hers, Doug and Laura Fairchild, both work for Computronix, and Lori knew that if it was the kind of environment that they enjoyed, she would also be able to thrive. For her, it was “all about the people – hard work is easy if you’ve got the right people, and good work is more challenging if you’ve got the wrong people.”


Even with industry experience, there was still a lot to learn about the specific capabilities and requirements of our POSSE product. But Lori found that her co-workers constantly made time to help her. “People listen here,” she says, “Ask a question, you always get an answer.”


In her opinion, this is because there is a unique environment in place at Computronix “that permeates throughout the company, starting from the top.” She describes it as “treating everyone like individuals, not just numbers…like people, not just employees. We all care about each other, and everyone comes together when someone needs help.”
