Interesting, transitional time for company, and good exposure to international banking
Senior Tax Accountant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, Canada – June 1, 2012
I completed a broad range of tasks and projects depending on the time of the month or the time of the year.
I was able to learn more about transfer pricing and costing schemes. I improved my MS Excel skills by working with large amounts of data, learning from colleagues and managers, and asking questions when applicable. I built on existing accounting and tax knowledge by researching and refreshing areas that I was unfamiliar with.
Management was good. They were patient, clear on expectations, clear on explanations of tasks, and enjoyable to work with.
My coworkers were friendly, courteous, and enjoyable to work with. I was able to make some new friends and great contacts while working here.
The hardest part of the job was the amount of work completed on my own. At times I would work on projects for a while without any feedback.
The most enjoyable part of the job was completing a large project, filing the returns, and moving onto new projects.
