Accountant Reviews

What is it like working as an Accountant?
Accountant in Sept-Iles:
"Work Hard, No Holidays, Lots Of Competition"
Pros: The knowledge you get and the discussions with the clients. The possibility of making overtime hours is good for making money. The opportunities to have a bright future if you do well is really promising.
Cons: The competition between colleagues, the high standards of the industry, the length of the courses needed compared to the wage is not good. The fact there is no unions and that you can be fired at any time (low employment security).
