    Anyone go to the aptitude test and Q&A today? Today made me realise how much I don't want to end up in the back office.... All the recent grads seemed depressed and told us how they get abused by Traders.

    Only really went for the interview/test experience anyways, but still really confirmed that all the rumours about the BO is true! :o:

    what is that?

    I remember when the finance/ops people came in to talk at our university and they were asked what was the toughest challenge they had faced on their job. One guy actually gave a good answer about coming up with a new framework for something whereas the others (like 5 of them) said something along the lines of "ehh the toughest challenge... was like the credit crunch... cos things were well ****** up then"

    There are some very smart people in ops/finance, but unfortunately they seem to be surrounded by complete idiots.
