Senior Accounting Analyst

Senior accounting analyst Laura Lifors has a variety of responsibilities on the GES trading floor where she keeps an eye on overall costs. "Right now the spreadsheets I have open are [market] structure but throughout the day, I switch desks and look at billing issues, customers who need to change contracts or if they request additional information." Occasionally Lifors travels to other GETCO offices to check on projects. On the New York trading floor, Lifors usually has six or seven spreadsheets open at all times including one screen dedicated to e-mail for quick responses to clients and co-workers, but mostly it's spreadsheets on multiple screens. "Yes, I live in Excel," she says.
