Let us discuss what each of us is doing professionally without giving out confidential data (what ever you think confidential). I think we can discuss our job profile, what tools and technologies we are using, work pressure etc. Let me start with myself.
Domain: Finance and Banking. My company is in top 5 bank.
Job profile: Writing Codes and code review of others. Helping junior coders.
Tools: Spring MVC, Spring, Hibernate, Tomcat, Eclipse
Process: No process as such (no RUP,Agile here). Just get the requirement and code.
Work Pressure: Quite relaxed.
Current interest: JSF

Job profile:
Insurance, Reinsurance, Retrocession.
Tools:
Eclipse, Weblogic, Struts, Swing, (Soon to come... ) Hibernate and Spring
Process:
Service requests as they come and document them. Requests may be of high priority like production defects or just normal requests.
Work Pressure:
Depends actually. Some days its crazy when you are cleaning up the crap that some one left on their code. Every day there is a new problem. I love it !
Office politics:
Can get ugly. Everyone wants their hands clean

Domain: Have laptop, will travel
Job Profile: Analyze, Design, and Write software applications. Provide mentoring to junior developers. Have worked as a team lead on two of my last three projects.
Tools: Always J2EE related. I'm always learning some new skill everywhere I go.
Process: Depends on client.
Work Pressure: Also depends on client, but generally high considering the nature of my work. I tend to come into projects that need talent that can come up to speed quickly and help them finish high profile projects. I tend to enjoy a level of stress that would make most flee in terror.
