"Beware of workload of a publicly traded corporation."
Working in Canada for a European publicly traded corporation is almost double the work to meet budgets & reporting deadlines. Foreign exchange and European expectations very demanding. While position is interesting, there are lots of factors that don't allow for current growth of the company and it's employees.

If you love accounting, be careful of how far you advance. Upper management is less about accounting and more about managing people.

You can be the best at what you do but without a degree of a designation, your employer will not adequately compensate the value you bring to an organization.

Financial Controller in Toronto:
"Advice."
- Work hard. - Learn as much as you can the industry as well as the company.

Financial Controller in Concord:
Stress level is comfortable, as I have a very supportive supervisor; however, daily responsibilities are high because he works part-time or from home most of the time. Time management is very important in this job, therefore the main focus of every task is efficiency. Human resources are very limited, so wise allocation of work and smart delegation is essential. The company has grown in the last couple of months tremendously (4 companies merged together), and the newly joined ownership creates some difficulty in decision-making and managing the financial function. Communication and professionalism is critical in this situation. Technical knowledge of the operational side is a huge asset, as the merge resulted in a mix of very different experiences and processes.
