What is it like working as a Billing Analyst?

Billing Analyst in Denver:
Pros: I enjoy the quiet focus I can assume while analyzing figures and reconciling invoices. It is satisfying to know that there is very little to know gray area in my position. Either the numbers fit or they don't.
Cons: I do not like having limited access to other systems that would enable me to resolve issues on my own. At my current assignment I must coordinate with other departments to relabel or adjust a figure, which can mean that I'll have to wait a few days for something I could do in a few minutes.
