Systems Developer Reviews

What is it like working as a Systems Developer?

Systems Developer in Washington:
"Great benefits, but poor leadership and work/life balance."
Pros: The salary and pace of career advancement are both great. Also, you get to learn a lot from others and by trial and error (safely) when working on a large project.
Cons: The leadership is almost non-existent. Everyone is there for their own career, and the mix of these two factors leads to a very poor, miserable work environment. Very high turnover rate, among analysts and middle management.
