Do you enjoy your work? I'm the manager of the department called the Banking and Portfolio Department for a large multi-national corporation. The responsibility of that department is to handle all the banking matters, relationship, credit issues, opening and closing accounts. We also manage the investment of the company's excess funds. The best thing about working in the department that we have is that you get to take decisions at a relatively low management level in the company— you get to watch the decisions come, follow through and you get to see the effect on the bottom-line profit of the company. We are one of the few areas in the world within a headquarters-type atmosphere where there is a profit centre, bottom line. One of the things I find the most frustrating is that the company is still very bureaucratic. We tend to produce a lot of paperwork and reports that don't seem to have any fit with the today's company business. And they've been generated for years and we continue to generate them because management has asked for them. We are attempting to change that but it continues to be a source of frustration for myself and my staff. I'm a commercial lender at the First National Bank of Lake Forest, which is a commercial bank in a suburb of Chicago with assets of about $400 million. It has recently been purchased by the Northern Trust Bank in the city of Chicago, which has assets of about $7.7 billion. We are very much a community-oriented bank and my lending will be diverse working with individuals, making mortgages and home construction loans as well as making personal loans and business and industrial loans. So very much of a general-purpose broad area lending. What is enjoyable about what I do is the opportunity to work with the owners of companies in the area and with professional people that reside

Johnson: And I'd just turned into the road between] assembly shops, when I saw a man in a black coat come out of the assembly-shop on the left, that's number two assembly shop. So I shouted to him to stop. He turned left and disappeared from view. And when I reached the end of the road looked round the corner I could see him running, the canteen quite fast.

Er ... he was strong though. I'd say he was about 25 years old. He kicked me on the head and I fell down on the floor. I remember anything else. Reporter: Did he knock you out, then? Johnson: I suppose he must have done, because when I woke up, Miss Jones was standing over me. Reporter: And did the thief get away with anything of value? Johnson: I can't really say. There was a black bag next to the fence with some computer tapes in it. I suppose that the chief must have been trying to steal.
