Full Charge Bookkeeper Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Full Charge Bookkeeper?

Full Charge Bookkeeper in Jersey City:
"The Peacefulness of working in a quiet and focused manner."
Pros: I like working with a group of Christian Minded individuals who are willing to work for a cause. This program brings opportunities to the underprivileged students who would not have the opportunity to perform well. I like working with numbers instead of working with people. It is a lot easier and I am challenged to work with my mind rather than with my body. Every day I am learning something new about excel or account to improve my current level of growth and potential.
Cons: The urgent deadlines. I feel that sometimes they don't give us enough warning about what we need to accomplish. For example, the other day the President of the organization came in and said he needed the reports for the board meeting and I was expecting to complete it on Monday. I stayed up all night trying to finish closing the books. A lot of the employees had not completed their credit card logs. The information was not accurate enough.

Full Charge Bookkeeper in Cleveland:
"Key Employee in a Small Business."
Pros: As long as the company is around, my job is safe. I know what is expected of me and I know that I can do everything that is asked of me at a high level.
Cons: Full charge bookkeeper is the closest title that really applies to my job. At the core, I am an accountant...but I am trusted to oversee everything this company does. Being trusted to handle every facet of business is an interesting dilemma. It is enjoyable to be respected this way, but it comes at a cost. Being the person that can handle every situation means that only the situations that are already convoluted or "out of control" are brought to your attention. Everyone else will try to cover up problems until they can not manage them anymore. So, I spend my days as a simple accountant that cleans up everyone else's mess and therefore gets most of the conflict directed to my office.

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.
