Don't produce different name's versions for a same entity (like employee_id / employee_no / employee_num / emp_id / emp_no / emp_num).

When you use values retrieved from database tables, try to name the corresponding variables exactly by the DB fields (of course, adding naming convention prefixes where needed). But you can feel more freely with local variables' names, especially when you are coding financial calculations while the tables fields names are not informative enough.
