Program Analyst Reviews

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

Program Analyst in Los Angeles:
"Brief summary."
Pros: The best part about working in Los Angeles is that there is opportunity to grow in a very rich and culturally diverse environment without limiting yourself to one career field.
Cons: I'm one-hundred percent sure the entire city of Los Angeles will agree with me that traffic in LA is an absolute nightmare, just driving 15 minutes on the 210 highway Monday morning towards downtown LA or Pasadena can make anyone go nuts.
