Continue to learn new skills.
October 2015
"Know your worth."
Senior Accountant:
Know what you are worth to your org and remember to highlight your value to the organization. In accounting adding value is harder to see because direct impact is harder. But you are very influential to your organization and your value is seen in the bottom line, it shoud be reciprocated to your value to the company.

"Very challenging."
Senior Accountant:
Pros: Reporting and analysis, data gathering, excel skills, reconciliations.
Cons: No recognition. One of the systems is old and not much improved. Currently, there is only 3 of us in Finance which was previously 5. The 2 are new as asst controller and Finance Director (both less than 6 months)

"Overworked, long hours, short fuse manager."
Senior Accountant:
Pros: Casual dress environment and complimentary snacks.
Cons: There are two types of individuals pervasive in the organization. Those that "play dumb" and manage to stay employed and those that cover for them.

Senior Accountant:
Negotiate your salary, accounting is necessary for a business and even though it is overhead it should not be overlooked as an important function of any company.
February 2016
Senior Accountant:
Dependency is something that we all should avoid. Apart from our abilities and strength we should not depend on any one. Resolving and analysis skills needs to be enhanced.
