      Or none of the above.

      Personally my job has two functions: a) I support and enhance various trade entry systems to handle a multitude of FI, FX & currency products. In addition to which, we are b) in the processing of writing a whole suite of products specifically designed to enable the FI desk (primarily) to manage their trading, with respect to rebalancing against model strategies and vendor benchmarks. Part b) is the interesting bit. We are writing it using an Excel front end and a Java EJB / J2EE back end. IMO, it's a brilliant strategy because the traders all know how to use Excel (obviously) and of course it enables them to do what they want with the results. All the business logic is contained in the Java beans in the back end and the data is retrieved and cached explicity using fairly forward Sybase stored procs.

      It's working a treat.

      Ive found something very interesting.....

      FREE access to vault guides from brooklyn college (usually they are expensive)

      basically they are career and company profiles (including top 50 guides), VERY comprehensive. Simply log in with no password.

      Another company you could also reference is NTT DATA. Their services are somewhat similar to the ones provided by Accenture.

      Not sure how I missed this thread. I worked for Accenture for 12 years up until last October when made redundant, prompting my move to Plzen. Was fine for me. Depends what role you have I guess, but the network operating centre was fine.
