“I enjoyed working for WEL Companies overall, but I would never recommend anyone work there. The owners are clueless as to what amount of time, effort, and stress the accounting department endures. In other words, I was making $28,000 a year as an accountant. I was in charge of the month end reconciliations, journal entries, and consolidated financial statement preparation for WEL Companies and its 9 subsidiaries. To break it down, I was making an average of $13.50 per hour when the national average for performing those tasks was well over $28 per hour. I enjoyed the work but once I requested a review of my responsibilities and my rate of pay, they suddenly decided to lay me off. This was after 3 weeks of dodging the meeting I requested. ”

if another department needed an analysis performed, they expected you to drop everything and just do what they needed. Even after speaking with my boss and getting advice, the other department heads would complain and chastise you for not prioritizing.
I never received a pat on the back nor told thank you for your hard work. In my experience as a manager and as an employee, that is the best thing you can do for someone. An intangible reward that motivates you. It may sound like I am being petty, but those small gestures mean a lot.Advice to ManagementAdvice
You should base your salaries on the national averages and then adjust accordingly or you will continue to have employee turnover which leads to more time training new employees.
