I work for a large IT company supplying various sized companies or govt departments with full infrastructure from USB pens to military level secure networks. My job is to manage (I'm not a manager) new offices being set up from being supplied with hardware and desk ports but stopping short of the server (seperate server team who supply and manage). So I have to get the hardware ordered/delivered/agreed/quoted then the other side where users are setup/provided with blackberry's/laptops - then accounts/software and individual needs (such as voice recognition stuff for RSI/disability peeps)
The pay is average/bordering on good but we have the typical grass is greener mentality when we see bills from contractors doing less work for double the pay (and theres no gaps in their work, so it isn't peaks and troughs), or rival companies with 20% higher wages - but the work environment is great - when theres no work in they don't give us inane crap to do and we have full net access so I can post here or even go through youtube which is great for a music addict like me. It's also one of those jobs where you can leave and clear your mind, bar a few busy periods, so none of this $h1t like emails on saturday or reports sunday night for monday's meetings (done that before and I don't want to give a vague impression that it was some 50k($80k) job, it wasn't, it was like £19k($30k) - hated being on the end of the line out of work/at weekends for that wage).
At nights i'm Batman.
Lol I don't know why that tickled me so much but... :)
