Dear LORD.. that is bored. Nice ceiling tho.

As pictures go - it's not the best... but in my defence - I wanted to make sure it all worked before taking a snap of real importance!

I've only ever worked in a handful of offices - but the ceilings are almost always a standard "IBM" grey :)

See, that must be what I liked about it. Very comforting.

Man - you sound institutionalised!

hahaha! I worked for IBM for many, many years. The building I worked in in Michigan looked just like a mainframe.

hahaha! Shaddup! Yes. I worked for diabolical large companies and now work for a very small software company with bad prospects. Quite cunning on my part.

I, on the other hand, worked for a stupidly small company - and now work for one of the biggest bastards in the finance world. I'm sure I'd go back to the smaller company given the chance.

Knowing the Director/CEO/top dawg by first name is a double edge sword that can be most rewarding if you are good at your job. Being good in a multi national is almost a waste of time.

You're with the House of Morgan?

Indeed... I'm one of Jamie Dimon's new army.

Good company.. a shame you're on the beggar's end of the exchange rate.

It was getting better... my shares are almost worth half what I paid for them...

In 10 years I'll be drinking champagne... either in celebration or desperation! :)

Good luck to you. My IBM shares are in a similar state, I never bought Pearson.. and this place.. well, it will be a miracle if we make it to a liquidity event.

When that cimp of a president sorts his fiscal policies out - or, realistically, when the American people vote the next guy in, I hope the Dollar makes a nice recovery!

We'll see. This is their gamble to make US manufacturing more affordable and shrink our debt. Ridiculous thinking.
