Job Title: Manager Of Finance
Type of Company: Currently I work for a privately held company that creates and hosts a portal that provides insurance companies and providers with eligibility and benefit, clinical, and financial transactions.
Education: BS in Management, Providence College MBA, Bentley University
Previous Experience: I worked as a business analyst for Freedom FP a division of ExpressScript for two years...this specific division dealt with infertility and Pharma
After that position I worked as a Senior Financial analyst for healthcare company, specifically in the workers comp division
Job Tasks: Every day at my job is different. Some days I spend working hours on a detail financial forecast or budget, that my CEO, and CFO as well as my board of directors utilize to steer the direction of the company. Other days I spend my day talking to the sales and account management team about potential deals that are on the table and creating financial models to see the impact. And finally other days I might spend my time in meetings discussing policy or brainstorming ways to make a more successful company. How do I do a lot of this? Using Microsoft Excel, different Access and SQL databases, Oracle, and simply walking around talking to co-workers.
Now the keys of my job are to be flexible, patient and open minded. Everyday is different, and change is the name of the game. Sometimes you have to drop everything you are working on and completely switch gears and do something else. And truthfully some days can be boring and tedious. Sometimes I have to be in at 7 am and sometimes I stay until 8 pm at night. You just have to do what it takes to get the job done. However the variety and my personal love for numbers is what keeps me going.
Best and Worst Parts of the Job: Simply the best parts of the job for me are the variety, the impact that I have, and the people I work with. Expanding on these points, variety is key in all aspects of life, and I like to keep on my toes. Having an impact, or as I like to say, having a seat at the table really helps me have the feeling that I'm making a difference. And working with people that you like and respect is one of the greatest things in the world.
I sometimes dislike how my job can be a bit tedious.
1. Love what you are doing - getting out of bed every morning is not always easy - so finding a job that you look forward going to is really important.
2, Make yourself a little uncomfortable and constantly challenge yourself. This will keep things fresh and open a lot of doors in your career.
3: Avoid boredom at all cost. Stay hungry, when the job gets easy, look for more challenges, if no challenges present themselves, find a new job that will further challenge you.
4: Respect your co-workers
