Senior Programmer Analyst Reviews

What is it like working as a Senior Programmer Analyst at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC)?

Senior Programmer Analyst in Herndon:
"Good For True Professionals."
Pros: Depending on the project/customer you are on, it is mostly no-nonsense type of work. No politics. Work with really smart, intelligent team members. I've worked for Accenture in the past, and its like high school. Cliques, politics, idiotic kids out of college who have no business in IT, etc... CSC is the big leagues.
Cons: Vacation time could be better. Lots of reorganizing going on in the company.
