Abandoned Property Audit REQUIRES a top notch skip tracer, who has strong CRM skills to research

A/P Consultant- Abandoned Property NYS (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Madison Square Garden as a contractor for less than a year

ProsMy boss(s) were excellent listeners and very interested in my progress and helped me gain internal efficiency.

ConsJust a huge organization with complexity to get things accomplished, ( too many cooks)

Advice to Senior ManagementHire your interns and temps. They want to work there and are already trained to "hit the ground running". Keep being kind to your subordinates. It is welcomed and makes one like coming to work there. Continue demanding productivity over weekends as you appreciate it. Your accounting team is excellent there.
