Accounting Manager Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Accounting Manager in North Haven:
Whatever projects your boss wants to put on your desk - TAKE IT. Experience is so much better than what was learned in school. Be confident in your work and responses. And if you are not, do not. Be afraid to admit that and ask for help. If the company will pay for training and/or education - take advantage! And if they don't and you have the means, take the class on your own dime. Additional training only makes you more marketable.

"General Corporate Structure & Procedures."
Clarity of corporate structure, job descriptions duties and responsibility and consistency. Working independently take the initiative.

Make sure your staff members understand and actually have a process for being accountable to you and their own work.
