Senior Applications Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee) – University Park, PA – February 9, 2019
Typical work day for me required sitting in front of a computer, attending meetings, working with customers on the telephone and mentoring and guiding co-workers. I learned a lot about how things are done in an IT office and how management functions in an IT office. The workplace culture was exceptionally diverse and this is something that must be accepted.
