We got a new CFO in work. He seems like a nice chap. He's coming from a large company that did some "restructuring". He really wants to get to know our company and it seems like he wants to make a good impression on the chief godhead (CEO). That's not a bad thing.
We have a division in another state. They insist on doing their own customer service and collecting. That's actually my job. They bitch if I bother their customers. Their collections record completely and utterly s-u-c-k-s. My record is well within industry guidlines (patting self on back). They don't want me to help them? Fine by me. That's not a bad thing.
Take one part new executive wanting to make good impression and take one part division that's in dire need of being slapped. Combine both elements. Use as catalyst one left-of-center receiveables coordinator who not only loves to works with numbers in large quantities but has been waiting for a new challenge in the workplace.
Oh no! The days of blogging and pogo.com might seriously be curtailed. Heavens! These people want me to ... dare I say ... work?
Yeah, I know that sounds really ill. Seriously, I love my job and I love numbers and accounting and finances and everything that gets to go with it. But I have been doing the same thing for quite some time and I am ready for a new challenge.
It's not official yet. But there has been more than one top executive looking at certain numbers wondering why XYZ site's figures are so poor while the sites I handle are, shall we say, well above average.
This could be why the other place didn't hire me.
I know this post is borderline boring as hell. Accounting is not what you call "hip and happenin'".
