There is No rhyme or reason why the pharmaceutical industries and their
corporate executive decisions and policies towards Clinical Programming
people are negative.
One time a senior Biostatistician, promoted to Assistant director who will
remain nameless but You know who You are Heeheehee, well he asked me this?
Why do you want to be a SAS programmer? That's not ALL i actually did there
in my clinical programming role and actually my title was Information Systems
Engineer Applied..meaning application development. Okay :)
Anyway there are better SAS engineering opportunities out there friends
Oh I think SAS Institute shall place a Clinical Data Warehouse over ALL of
Kali SAS Mera!
