Programmer Analyst Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Programmer Analyst?

Programmer Analyst in Winston-Salem:
"Good company with less pay."
Pros: Indian pay as laterals is good but I am not sure how it is as a fresher. Managers are sometimes good and listen to you and try to find a solution.
Cons: Increase onsite pay atleast by $20000 so that people won't leave the company.

Programmer Analyst in Pittsburgh:
"CAI 3 year review."
Pros: My manager if flexible, and I get to work from home once a week to make driving easier.
Cons: The environment. There is basically no limit to what is okay to say here. From politically incorrect things said about women, minorities, foreigners, sexual orientation. It's an HR nightmare, and even the managers engage in this. It's inappropriate.
