Nice but stressful work environment
Bookkeeper & Finance Secretary (Former Employee) –  Merrill, WIFebruary 8, 2013
Working in the finance department can be very stressful. I would not recommend this position to anyone without previous experience and who does not thrive on a constant time-crunch.

On the plus side, the peole are nice and breaktimes are flexible. At the time I left, they were transitioning into a paperless office. Management tries to promote a work/life balance, but it doesn't always work out because of the amount of work that needs to be done.
Pros
fun-loving, community involvement, parking
Cons
no overtime, it department, training
