"I love being a finance director because of the challenges, and meeting new people and being able to make sure that the consumers' loans are protected and seeing a smile on their faces when the customers are finished and ready to leave in their new vehicle, also building a rapport with the consumer to build a referral program with them and the salesman."

"I love the ability to affect change and to influence decisions that I believe are important in making a company successful. The politics inside companies are inevitable, what I hate is when that inevitability wins out over common sense, for bad reasons."

"I love the ability to mentor young members of the department. As a leader of the group, it makes the job easier when the team is able to take accountability of its actions, one of the two values that I included on each employee goals."

"What I enjoy the most working as a Controller & Director of Finance is that it gives me the ability to oversee a company financially as well as express that in an annual or quarterly filing such as a form 10-K. What I did not liked about the position is the short time I had there due to the acquisition. I personally like working for organizations for a long time, however, my last 2 employments have been short-lived due to M&A transactions."

"Being the Director of Finance, Student Services and Operations has tremendous benefits. To be responsible for the success of multiple campuses is extremely challenging and rewarding at the same time! Working with the management staff to ensure they have the tools they need to be successful, and working directly with the staff to ensure they have the guidance and leadership they need to be productive is a great feeling!"

Director of Finance at Gibraltar Associates
in Los Angeles, CA

What do you like about working at Gibraltar Associates?

"As a corporate communications PR firm, we naturally have a team environment, but we also have to be cutting edge in order to thrive, so we are empowered to be autonomous, take the lead on projects, bring new ideas to the table, think outside the box. I wear 3 hats at GA, Finance, Operations and HR. The rest of our staff are PR professionals. This means I fully own my position and its responsibilities. I am part of the core team with the owners and the partners, strategizing for the future, and leading the firm's growth and expansion opportunities."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It's a young company full of great young PR professionals who care about their clients. You could rise quickly in the ranks here as a PR person. As an administrator however, there will not be a lot of opportunities for advancement. Overall, a very good company to work for."

What don't you like about working at Gibraltar Associates?

"GA is being merged in January 2012 with a larger firm in DC that already has senior finance, operations and HR personnel. My career path opportunities will suddenly be extremely limited. I would like to take this opportunity to find another wonderful company where I can take the lead in what I do best. Working with start-ups and small, growing businesses gives me great pleasure as I can truly make a difference there and have a role of importance."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would be more conscious of cash flow, and limit monthly guaranteed distributions to a reasonable level where it would leave enough cash to actually pay the vendors on time. I would incentivize my staff to use the company resources more judiciously, and utilize the forecasting and strategic planning to guide the company. I would pay for professional development for my staff and promote employees up through the ranks. I would encourage team building and education for my staff. I would encourage a work/life balance and flexible schedules."
