Some testers (QA folk) think they are project managers - and these people are a detriment to delivering a quality product on time.

Others understand their role in a team delivering a product, and work as cooperating team members, focusing on how well their tests cover the code's functionality and the user's potential input. These folks are an invaluable asset.

IMHO, on a development team, the QA person should be involved to some degree (as a non-developer) during development so they are better prepared when testing starts, but should report to the team lead, who (again, IMHO) is a senior-level software engineer with solid business, communications, and leadership knowledge, skills, and abilities.
