Productive, fast-paced work environment with fewer opportunities for advancement in my field of work
Pros: Well-known organization to work for with good health benefits
Cons: Low Pay and advancement limited
On any given day at work, I may be involved in Budgets Preparation and variances interpretation, Monthly Billings, G/L and AR Analyses, programs' reviews and assessments, Drafting contracts, Expression of Interest (EOI) and Request for Proposals (RFPs) related to Social Services programs. I may need to meet with either the Contracts Manager, Controller or Director of Financial Operations to strategize and revise methodologies. I am one of the senior accountants on a Finance Team of Accounting Clerks, Bookkeepers, Staff Accountants and Contracts Specialists. The hardest part of the job is that there is no off peak time of the year. The most enjoyable part of the job is the daily challenges for which innovative solutions must be found. Just like in a firefighter's world, there are always fires to be extinguished.
