Financial Controller Advice

Q: What is it like working as a Financial Controller?

Financial Controller in Victoria:
If you love accounting, be careful of how far you advance. Upper management is less about accounting and more about managing people.

Financial Controller in Toronto:
"Get A Degree."
You can be the best at what you do but without a degree of a designation, your employer will not adequately compensate the value you bring to an organization.

Financial Controller in Toronto:
"Advice."
- Work hard. - Learn as much as you can the industry as well as the company.

Financial Controller in Concord:
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.

Financial Controller in Halifax:
"Advice."
Work hard at making sure that you have a handle on all aspects of the company's operations.

Financial Controller in Edmonton:
"Focusing on the big picture"
What I think is critical is to look at the big picture. While I worked in Finance and financial management, my world was black and white. We adhere to strick policies and guidelines in Finance, it is extremely structured. As the controller, you need to ensure that staff is adhering to rules and policies but in advising managment and working with operations you need to realize that they work in shades of grey. The challenge is to ensure you are flexible enough, to try to come up with ways to accomodate managment and open enough, to think outside the box (known parameters). The big picture is where is the organization going and what do we need to do to get there. But enter politics and sometimes you get lost in the confusion this causes, so my best advice would be to stay neutral and out of politics. Instead focus on where you are going and use this as an anchor.

Financial Controller in Indian Head:
"Love it!"
Pros: Playing with figures
Cons: The people I work with
