Staying business analyst or being a Data Analyst? 

 Hi everyone-

I am currently a business analyst in a big health care company and got an offer for a data analyst position in the same company from a different department. It is a better payment, amazing benefits and getting into more professional side of the company. Right now, I work as a business analyst and it is my first job. I love being a business analyst and feel like data analyst will be a step down in my career. My goal is to be a project manager and I feel like business analyst position will carry me there.What do you guys think? Is it a better opportunity or should I just stick with my job? 

Thanks,

 "My goal is to be a project manager"

If you are going for the Data Analyst, it is more of a technical position ... SQL Extracts, ETL, etc. (Look into the trend of "Big Data").

If you are wanting to be a Project Manager, I'd look more at your BA position and see if you can move into some Lead BA or Project Coordinator spot to get some project management experience and maybe move up further to a JR Project manager and so-on ... You will need that project experience for the PMP Application (if you are going after that).

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements.
