Auditing is auditing, i have learned a lot from the people around and management. The deadlines are tight and stressful but it is what makes you a better person and stronger worker. Proper planning is required to meet deadlines and keep management at bay. i enjoyed my time at the firm i have developed into a good auditor. i have been able to do relatively big audits on my own.
learning every key item required to complete an audit.
deadlines and clients demands.
This is inherent as a trainee accountant but it is a really stressful environment. Though you receive good support in certain areas, one is still prone to burning out because of the very long hours .
Secondment opportunities overseas
Long hours, intense office politics
During these three years i have learned a great deal. I have learned how to manage both my work life and social life. I have also learned how to manage my time. I learned different management styles. I learned how to cope under pressure. I have built awesome relationships that helped me be the best version of myself. The hardest part of the job was letting the clients know that we here to help and not out to get them. Most enjoyable part was learning something new everyday
Training, away audits
Work starts at 08:15 am, my usual time of arrival is 07:50. I arrive at my desk and start unpacking my laptop and stationery; preparing myself for the day ahead. You don't know what the day is instore but you need to prepare yourself emotionally. As I am busy reading my emails, An Audit Supervisor start calling me to his desk, I need you to finish this job for me and without him asking me what I am busy with. We have different managers that we walk for and we don't work for one manager. Before he continued and I told him I am working on this client and I told him to speak to the supervisor of the client before I can work on his client; then he went to the other audit supervisor to ask that I can work on his client, and they agreed. As per the agreement of the two supervisors the job was only to take one day and I go back and work for the other supervisor; due to constant adjustments on the current work the work continued more than one day. The other supervisor came to confront me that I have been planned on his job and I have to work on his job; and I told him I am still working on this client, please speak to the supervisor of this job. What this taught me, communication is very important. There should be clear communication between line manager. Managers should ask for permission to use a trainee accountant from other managers that they work for first.
