Work hard at making sure that you have a handle on all aspects of the company's operations.
Know The Company Policies.
Stick to the policies and make sure they are rigorously followed and you will have no problems.
Stress level is comfortable, as I have a very supportive supervisor; however, daily responsibilities are high because he works part-time or from home most of the time. Time management is very important in this job, therefore the main focus of every task is efficiency. Human resources are very limited, so wise allocation of work and smart delegation is essential. The company has grown in the last couple of months tremendously (4 companies merged together), and the newly joined ownership creates some difficulty in decision-making and managing the financial function. Communication and professionalism is critical in this situation. Technical knowledge of the operational side is a huge asset, as the merge resulted in a mix of very different experiences and processes.
