Dang, this place is so serious and ''focused'' grin Not a bad thing of course, but I think we should have a chill zone where you can kick back,relax and talk about how your day went at work.

Seriously,how many workers here have people they return home to at the end of the day that sincerely ask ''how was work today''?

So in this zone,you can come in, tell us your career field, your job designation if you like (not compulsory), and then you share how work went.

How did your boss totally piss you off? What blunder did you make? What great feat did you accomplish? What project are you working on and how is it going? What things hinder your progress in your field/at your office? Customer pressure (Bankers, Telecomm peeps, etc) ? Funny events that took place at the office?

Come here and share all. And let others benefit from your experiences, and offer you some good advice too. You never know, you just might get that idea you've been searching for in here.  .  .and definitely you will be able to de-stress here grin If your story is one you would rather start an independent thread on, even better.

This could work if every worker makes some sensible contribution.  .  .I can't make it fly by myself grin. So let's share.

*Hols are coming up yeah, but work will still go on*

ook o
im a finacial/investment analyst. Im a CFA Candidate also and i work with a reputable asset mgt coy.
I had a consulting backgorund in strategy and corporate finance so when i changed jobs, the pay was gigantum and expectations too are/were off the hook. . . . (thts a brief background)

yesterday, i had a meeeting early in d morning with some of my clients. The company ( an integrated energy coy) hoping to come to the mkt next year to raise funds).
The meeting was long and crazy. the meeting ended and off i went to the office to finish up on some models ive been building and while at it, i got a call from a client that the SEC people wanted a re-arranged meeting and off i jumped into the car with the driver to SEC

on getting there, we were delayed for a while and then the meeting started. it went well and all resolutions were passed.
It wasnt all work and no play cos as we were coming back, awon boiz branched a coded place and took some shots
Got back to work, worked on ma models, and as the day was winding up, i got a mail from my boss about another opportunity in carbon trading.
we had a quick meeting to sort out the opportunities in it for us and blah blah blah

the day went by quickly and later on i checked ma facebook account, posted on NL, made calls to peeps, and then ma trip to the US perfected. that one na tmr nite ooo
the yuletide is hereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
the day ended my people and i didnt leave ma office on time cos of the normal Lagos traffic. left after seeing Chelsea and Evertons first half game. boring!!!

No issues at work yesterday with colleagues and bosses so yesterday was an unusual day cos sometimes ehn, na wahala from morning till nite
thts yesterday for me o
today the last day for the year don begin so lets see how it goes

Re: Welcome To My Office by Cristalz(f): 5:16pm On Jan 06, 2009
Tkb you and this your hectic office. Hope you've been able to catch up.

Mine relaxed over the hols though things are picking up again. . .busy using my contacts and high-powered binoculars to pick out those human beings with bulging pockets and rope them in, as well as attend to the numerous issues of the already roped-in human beings.

Also trying to get investors to consider buying Honeywell Flour Mills shares. . .two of my people are issuers. But while some are of the opinion that now is the time to invest,as in, the stock market being as crappy as it is, most think investing now is suicidal. Ain't helping business,lol. Guess Oba Otudeko's rep ain't that strong right now grin

My boss is so so eager to make some good money this year, and of course she's transferring the pressure to her ''soldiers''. Been busy day though, out scouting around and in later to take care of online work. Can't wait to get home jo grin
Re: Welcome To My Office by tkb417(m): 6:34pm On Jan 06, 2009
Oba Otudeko what bought starcomms with plenty money after the sweet mouth and the impressive numbers we saw but u dont wanna know how dangerously crazy that thing went into coma. same for other investments like that.

ask coys like bgl, rencap, vetiva, afriinvest, chapelhill their stories, its same, they are all in deep poo
so if there are no institutional investors to mop up, how u think say the name Oba Otudeko will make me part with ma hard earned money grin grin

i can see ure doing well in this investment game, step up ur game and write cfa and come into the mainstream, not ur marketing thingy jare

money dey o grin grin

yes o
had a lotta stuffs to do today
the list is endless
prepared placement memo for private and insitutional investors for one of my oil n gas people lookin for dough
had a long conference call with ma other parties in diaspora for this same O n G coy looking for extra funds offshore cos who knows wetin 9ja go talk if we cant raise money successfully from the floor
black scholes - men, my head nearly scatter as the thing just dey mess up
analysed some stuffs using spss and did a lotta analysis ( pending jobs from december o) the thing wan kill me

had lunch with some chocos from a nearby bank and the thing went smoothly till i called my oga again. this guy just love to rake even when nothing dey on board. i fit vex go another place o grin grin i no dey go

yep, its 6;30pm, i hope ill go home early today but traffic full everywhere.

Re: Welcome To My Office by debosky(m): 7:06pm On Jan 06, 2009
To start with, I'm an Environmental Advisor working in oil and gas.

Not a good start to the week - forgot I had an incident management team meeting at 8am. Woke up late and had to give excuses about 'blocked nozzles' and frost covered windows as an excuse. Don't think anyone bought it though.  grin
No matter, got the briefing from a colleague.

Just absorbing the news that oga is leaving in two weeks!  shocked  sad Was just getting to like the guy, now the time to start sucking up and doing 'eye service' to new oga starts now. It doesn't get better than this. *rolls eyes*

Quick risk assessment this morning on a new project for middle of the year, hope oil price wahala doesn't cancel the project. I'm banking on this one to be my coup de grace before I move on.  undecided

Had to try to remember a meeting I had in early December and write up the report. Two cups of coffee needed to achieve that. Note to self - next time write up IMMEDIATELY afterwards.

All these yeye ogas need to get their act together. Wasted 20 minutes waiting for a teleconference, he eventually called back and rescheduled. I wish he didn't even do that because at the end of the day I didn't want to hear what he had to say. All this work to be done in 2009?? I'm still trying to finish up the mess they created for me 3 days before Christmas.  angry tongue E go beta sha. They had better sort this out and let me know what I have to deliver this year.

The floating rumour of a 9% pay rise nor come true sha. I don tell this Portuguese girl not to get our hopes up for nothing.  tongue

Not really in the mood for work yet, some dude who barely worked 2 weeks quit and now is coming back on Thursday? Which kain worker be that sef? I know if I tried that I'd be gone in a heartbeat

I need to get what I can out of this joint, naija na where e dey happen eventually. Stories I heard over Christmas still dey ring for my ears - 650k a month, plus 3m starting allowance just for a starter oh. I need to get my act together fast.

Enough bitching for the day, must've done barely 4 hours work today  grin Oh well, as far as I'm concerned this week na jaara, still trying to readjust to work.  grin grin

TK we suppose yarn about carbon trading oh, me sef dey do some work on that so maybe we fit collabo in the future wink
Re: Welcome To My Office by tkb417(m): 7:23pm On Jan 06, 2009
Debo
u dey work for Oil and Gas u come dey abroad.   .    .fly back here and chop plenty money
those guys can't think straight again, too much money dey worry them

Carbon trading? oya na
Might need to visit the Aussies soon because of that. i no mind collabo with u ooo since u be expert
Re: Welcome To My Office by debosky(m): 7:35pm On Jan 06, 2009
Ol boy I be beginner o! I just moved into this after doing R&grin and mining. Naija companies didn't fancy me then, so I'll arrange myself properly before going to show them pepper in a few years. Na them go dey beg then. grin

Wetin you dey find for Aussie ontop carbon trading? Omo Europe is the leader worldwide when it comes to that, unless na CDM you dey find sha. I no be expert, but after the wahala I don do ontop the matter, man must find a way of benefitting. grin
Re: Welcome To My Office by tkb417(m): 7:48pm On Jan 06, 2009
The Aussie thing came about cos they are about coming to partner a Lagos based coy. Its more of familiarisation tour of the Australian coy.

abeg sharpen ur skillz well o and storm these money men in 9ja. R&grin and Mining? omo, u try o
im trying to sell the idea to one of my younger ones to do courses like that.

abeg, continue ur research on the carbon stuffs o, ill be running to u as soon as im getting clearer with opportunities in that area. like u said, i must find a personal way of benefitting grin

ill get ur details from Mukina
Re: Welcome To My Office by Cristalz(f): 9:09pm On Jan 06, 2009
Tkb you owe me o. . .I've career-ly linked you with sangreal and now debosky, and perhaps me undecided

Na Oba Otudeko be President for naija stock exchange na. . .I think that's the thing some investors are looking at. As if that's a sure guarantee of anything. BGL is one of the lead issuing houses for Honeywell sha. . .guess it's 'cause they don't have a choice. They've got to get their money back somehow.
I'm seriously thinking about CFA o, my dear. . .thinking about it. Abj is a good place to work. . .traffic ain't half as bad as Lagos. And no bikes grin Also you get to meet VIPs. Discuss with baba God well well o,lol.

@debosky

Oil man, come to naija and reap abundantly,lol grin

Your office sounds interesting, not as hectic as TKB's. So you're a coffee addict? Better repent. . .bad habit. How long will it take you re-adjust to work anyway? It's tuesday. You're prob'ly gon' need the week at this rate grin
Guess the pressure in your office ain't as bad as it is in naija. . .

How come everybody has so much leftover from '08? grin
Re: Welcome To My Office by oyb(m): 10:24pm On Jan 06, 2009
what a great way to start the new work year - yesterday my laptop booted with a black screen cry cry cry

so now i have to spend the next 96 hours reinstalling windows , ms office, autocad, sketchup etc. . .

fortunately oga is on leave , so i can jack off without getting harassed wink

but work looms. got to get to a terminal in apapa to review a boq submitted by a vendor, then visit like 5 stations to ensure contractors aren't cutting corners. at least i'll be out of the office  cheesy

and what do u know, them hampers are still coming in cheesy
