my understanding of the real definition of "senior" is:
1. needs very little assistance, if at all, to get their work task completed.
2. mentors and reviews entry level and junior developers/programmers/engineers/whatever.
3. is part of the system architecture and design process and decision making.

what I have discovered is more in line with what Sander has posted: people who have been with the company a long time.

I have also observed people who have been in the business for a certain amount of years and these people think that gives them the right to be called "senior", when it fact, they are terrible at what they do and are anything but senior.

at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter anymore.
