There is very little structure on a typical day and staff usually gets freedom in tackling tasks as they see fit. They are very lenient with break times and time-off requests
I learned about processing payroll, doing reconciliations, completing year-end audit processes, and calculating multi-million dollar claims
Management was very distant and hardly ever kept staff informed of deadlines and expectations. Dealing with them was definitely the hardest part of the job. We were often left to solve problems with inadequate training and minimal support.
I did learn a lot there and for that, the experience was worthwhile and can be carried forward into bigger and better things.
Opportunities to learn, relaxed environment
No guidance by management and unclear expectations/deadlines. Insufficient training offered.
