Audit Associate | Melville, NY | 18 juin 2012
Unique environment providing instant exposure to a variety of clients
The working environment provides for numerous opportunities to gain exposure to upper level management as well as key accounting principles. Work days range from 8 hours during summer months to greater than 12 hours during the busy season (January through March). Each engagement is unique and provides a different working environment in relation to the size of teams and the frequency of manager presence. Associates are typically responsible for more routine accounting areas such cash, prepaids, accounts payable, fixed assets and investments. Testwork includes tests of operating effectiveness over the control environment as well as substantively testing year-end balances through trend analysis and/or selections of individual transactions. Challenges include completing all audit testwork within a short-period of time while staying in the parameters of the established budget. However, the job allows associates to communicate with staff accountants, controllers, and at times, CFO’s which quickly builds on networking and communication skills.
