Comfortable place to work with competitive wage and benefits.
Pros: indoors, climate controlled, accessible facilities, frequent food at meetings
Cons: most workers are distant from decision making and can do little to influence those decisions, i no longer work there.
My most recent place of employment was an excellent place to work. The wages were comparatively high for my area and the work environment was pleasant. As an accounting person, the work could have been at any large firm and would not have been significantly different. In the office I heard of the project work that I was supporting and found much of it very interesting. That connected me to the larger goals of the firm.
My co-workers were a treat with which to work. They were polite, professional, level, community involved and frequently quite funny. The supervisors were knowledgeable and accessible. Because of the size of the company, the supervisors with which I dealt did not have much influence over the direction of the company or policies they were asked to implement.
The hardest part of my most recent role at was finding and compiling the backup for large projects timely and without error. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping a non-accounting coworker to navigate the accounting systems to achieve their goals, whether it being processing an invoice, determining the validity of a charge on their project, or filling out an expense sheet.
