In the department I was working on gross-ups, cost reports, and running tax reports. After working in the department for a few weeks the director decided to keep me and let me stay with the department. I was taught how the system works what needed to be done to get the reports done but there were times that the director or manager would come to me and ask for my help in creating new and better reports. Well this is where the critical thinking came in because not only was the report for the department but for others as well. The project was to have a report that tied to what Accounts Receivables was billing out for the clients. The problem with that was that each client was billed on different days of the week or month. We also had to figure out how to have the Accounts Receivable reconciled on a monthly basis as well. Eventually after weeks of testing the decision was made that when we would go to do the gross-up for the clients we would use the last date that Accounts Receivable used as a cut off date. I would compare the file, depending on the client, and make sure that every expense was being picked up and make sure that the Accounts Receivable department did not miss anything. I worked for the Expense Department for 4 ½ years and I then was transferred to the Accounts Payable Department where to this day I still am there. Since I have been with this department there have been decision that I have made on my own with the approval of my manager and I have put a lot of thinking in this department that there were times that I just did not want to be here anymore. We have a new CFO that started back in October and since he has been with the company I say that we have used the following steps in the Decision Making steps. The CFO first question was “How can we fix the current problem in the company?” He had scheduled meeting after meeting with every department to identify the problem, where does the problem lie, how has the problem View More »
