Accounting Manager Advice

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

Accounting Manager in Las Vegas:
"Be Licensed."
I've learned over the years that having a license to quote and show and manage space may improve my worth to the company. I do more than accounting, I am also a Property Manager and I support the owner of the company. One day I am reading meters and the next day meeting with our Attorney or CPA to discuss tax returns.

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.

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

Accounting Manager in Indianapolis:
"No accountability."
Make sure your staff members understand and actually have a process for being accountable to you and their own work.

Accounting Manager in Providence:
"Make sure responsibilities are defined."
My position becomes the 'dump zone' for things that don't necessarily be directly related to my accounting duties. I also tend to be the 'go to' person for answers to questions that should be answered by the persons direct manager; but unfortunately people realize that I either have or can get the answer (learn to make boundaries as well).
