Would not recommend working in the finance department
I worked in the finance department and it was not a good environment to be in.
- Tensions are high from management which are let out of staff beneath them
- so much turnover in finance, with little hiring to replace vacant positions. With a growing company, Brandt should be increasing staff, not decreasing staff. I was doing three jobs (accounting clerk, assistant controller and controller) before I quit.
-Brandt is reactive (at best) and never proactive. They only makes changes months after the fact (such as hiring)
- long hours with no compensation (easy 50+ work weeks all year long)
-little to no training and no support from management
- when you take vacation, no one is cross trained so you’ll most likely be required to work extra hours to get caught up before/after vacation. And remember, no compensation for extra hours worked.
Salary was slightly above average on paper, but way below average based on actual hours worked, stress and duties.
