Typical CPA firm with lots of work and very little enjoyment.
Pros: Birthday celebrations and a few lunches out with the staff and partners.
Cons: Trying to communicate with individuals who resist communication.
My duties were spread over being the receptionist, office "manager", processing financial statements, light bookkeeping, processing tax returns and office supplies and maintenance.
The management and partners of the firm had been around the area for a long time. They were very inflexible, had no sense of humor, and very difficult to communicate with.
Staff accountants and the lady who trained me for my position were very nice, but restrained.
The hardest part of my job there was communicating with the partners.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the lady who trained me. She was a joy.
