bank ops > civil service.

ops people make good salary too, and contrary to what you said, there are career paths within ops.

on the other hand CS is a dead end unless you're a scholar -- dead because it's impossible to hop from CS to private sector once you're in. dunno why, but the people in private sector simply don't like to hire ex-CS.
