Corporate Controller Advice

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

Corporate Controller in Carrollton:
"Work Smarter not Harder."
Don't be afraid to delegate. Hold people responsible for their assigned duties. Be fair in your evaluations and work ethic. Reward only when rewards are due. Make it your priority to know your employees so you can communicate to them in an effective manner.

Corporate Controller in Phoenix:
"It's a Good Living but you won't get rich."
Try to work for a large, publicly traded company and keep up to date with your networking.

Corporate Controller in Springboro:
"Audit Or Tax?"
Public accounting pushes one or the other. Try your best to get experience in both areas for well balance knowledge. Accounting helps you do your job, Tax helps you keep your boss and owners happy.

Corporate Controller in Phoenix:
"Don't Rush/Don't Delay."
Don't rush the college experience. Some assume it's the "right" thing to do to dive into college directly after high school. I recommend taking a year off after HS and travel and recharge your batteries before fully immersing yourself into college. But don't let that 1 year time frame turn into a regretful 10 year time frame or even worse to delay indefinitely.

Corporate Controller in San Clemente:
"Just Be The Best At Whatever You Do. The Money Will Follow."
Put the gun down.... take a few deep breaths.
