Politically correct way of referring to Back Office Monkey's. The term was originally derived by Jagov of Analystforum fame in response to Rajesh's indignation about being called a monkey. BOMS typically think the term refers to some advanced mid office function are proud to be refered to as such. In order to qualify the BOM must be a dreamer, to believe that is worth is far greater than it truly is. BOMs always complain about their meager salaries but can be appeased with doughnuts.
That BOM settled my trade for $12 million and now thinks his bonus should be a couple hundred grand.
I offered an aspiring BOM a chance to work alongside me as a Portfolio Administrator but he turned me down because it would have involved a 42 hour week instead of his usual 35. Now I hear he'd touting Nortel on Analystforum.
