Senior Programmer Analyst Advice

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

Senior Programmer Analyst in Omaha:
"There are no advancement opportunities."
Ask for raises after completing huge projects or fixing other people's work.

Senior Programmer Analyst in Lebanon:
The work environment is pretty good. It's important that you subscribe to company culture. Career advancement and promotion is non-existent unless you want to be a manager.

Senior Programmer Analyst in Livonia:
"Job."
Be ready to sit for long periods of time...

Senior Programmer Analyst in New York:
"Never give up."
Plan, plan, plan before starting to do anything.

Senior Programmer Analyst in Fort Lauderdale:
"Greed in the world."
Most companies jack up the price of their product(s) to an unrealistic ROI (return on investment) but do very little to share their profit with those workers who are the reason for their success.

Senior Programmer Analyst in Harrison:
"Computer science jobs are many, but some stifle creativity."
Try to negotiate a position where you will have a measure of freedom to innovate and design solutions yourself instead of being force-fed a one-size-fits-all plug-in solution that someone far removed from your task has built. Also, beware companies who are heavy into 3rd party contractors for complex solutions and support.....at the end of the day you as the full-time employee will probably be left to clean up the mess and be held responsible even if you had little or no input to the original design or implementation. As with any other career, if you're not happy doing the work, it's just another pay-the-bills job.

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.
