Guardian needs a morale boost...
Accounting Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Portland, Oregon – January 26, 2013
The most enjoyable part of my time at Guardian was learning a completely new-to-me field; The CFO offered me an opportunity to transfer my undefined administrative assisting skills to accounting, and in this department I was immersed in the world of opening and closing bank accounts, transferring money, depositing money, etc. It was a genuinely great learning experience.
My co-workers were mostly hard-working and knowledgeable, but unfortunately Guardian has a high turn-over rate, which made it difficult to keep morale up while new people were being trained and accounts shifted around.
A typical day at Guardian looked like a typical 9-5 office job. There were laughs, stresses, and goals to be completed.
My hope for Guardian is that the owner and management become a bit more in touch and appreciative of their employees... We all know it is a business and the all-mighty dollar is important, but the employees need to know they are equally as important as the bottom line. Communication!!! Training!!! Respect!!! These three things need to be improved upon.
