Out of interest, what do you guys do?
I work for HP on the BT delivered NHS project (don't worry we're not as far up sh*t creek as the daily mail is making out). I'm part of the senior (3rd/4th line) sys admin team for a windows and vmware estate of over 3000 servers (half phys, half virtual). Been on this project for just under 4 years. Before that I designed and implemented EFT systems for large retailers.
