    I helped close them down - had to be done as part of the Citi credit crunch debacle.

    It was interesting as I found it one of the most effective IT operations I had come across - a pleasure to work there. It was difficult to fill the day, things went so smoothly. However I subsequently worked with someone who had been at Egg a few years earlier (pre Citi) and he said it was total chaos.

    Money personally but its worth emphasising what its there for. It collects website visitor information and provides a playback of how the user interacts with the site / page...

    There are definitely some techs/languages/frameworks that have shot up in demand over the last few months.

    I'm seeing both ends of the spectrum advertised. Im seeing some roles with rates so high in my particular specialism that I'm reasonably convinced the roles doesn't exist. At the end of the day, it is the rate you manage to get for one of these if they are not quietly dropped after you apply.

    In contrast, I'm also seeing some roles in my specialism being advertised at rock bottom rates which also convinces me clients and \ or agents are taking the piss in the current market.

    I'm also seeing an apparent increase in FTC's being advertised. However, I'm not certain whether this is actually an increase of these or, I'm just noticing them more due to fewer contracts catching my eye.

    Lots of fake ads out there at the moment. Until someone on these forums gets one of these roles @ the stonking rates & reports back who knows!

    Well, took 12 months but have finally landed a contract.

    Really pleased for you. Well done for hanging in. How close were things getting on the finances?
