What is it like working as a Chief Financial Officer (CFO)?

Chief Financial Officer (CFO) in Johannesburg:
"Management, Stress Level."
Pros: The challenge everyday brings being a listed company and making things work and fall in place to grow the company and shareholder wealth.
Cons: No one except one other chartered employee understands the responsibility and what needs to be done when your company is listed on the JSE. Their lack of knowledge in general accounting principles, financial principles and taxation is frustrating. They dont understand the impact of their job on mine often resulting in me taking over to make things work.
