Finance Department is the worst
Executive Assistant to the CFO (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 November 2018
Finance is the worst department to work for. STAY FAAR FAR FAR away especially from Finance. Some of the worst individuals ever starting with upper management. Senior managers are bullies. You will feel attacked any chance they get. Everyone that has been there long will tell you how unhappy they are, everyone has a story. Some people stick around because they want to retire and others have bills to pay. Be prepared to be overworked, never thanked, and treated like hot garbage. Also, they waste a lot of time on many meetings which the rest of the organization laughs about behind their back, so unnecessary. Everyone in the organization knows what a pile of garbage finance is and they talk about it openly during lunch. But, senior hr keeps quiet because they think senior management in finance has been there long enough + is doing a good job. Simply put: finance senior management does not care about its employees yet expects them to act like a bunch of yes men and it is all good as long as they agree to work like slaves while being treated like garbage.
However, other departments seem to have sane people. Just stay away from Finance, it is a revolving door.
