Full Charge Bookkeeper Reviews

What is it like working as a Full Charge Bookkeeper?

Full Charge Bookkeeper in Almont:
"Making a Difference as a Full-Charge Bookkeeper."
Pros: I like the independence, having a key role in the company and the trust they place in me. I also enjoy that the organization of the information and procedures becomes my own. I am able to be the best I can be in a department I'm in charge of.
Cons: Working in a small company, I am normally the only one in Accounting. This creates a problem when I need time off. In the past at another company I had solved the problem, with a lot of effort, by creating an Accounting Instruction binder with detailed tasks for each area of my job. It served as insurance in the event someone else would have to temporarily step in and process payroll, pay bills, receive customer payments, etc. Without it, as in most companies, the Full-Charge Bookkeeper is indispensable. Concerning the duties of the job, the HR responsibilities involving employee medical insurance are the least enjoyable.
