Accounting manager will micromanage everything you do at the office, whether it be work-related or personal. Never expect to be shown any real gratitude for a job well done, only additional assignments and a fake offering of "thanks." Management struggles to show support or motivation of its colleagues but rather expects instant eagerness and acceptance of increasing job duties from the moment you walk in the door.

PTO is a joke unless you reach the three year mark (which I highly doubt ever happens in the accounting department.)
Advice to Management
Learn to manage people rather than command them. Embrace your people as individuals and not as accounting robots. Allow accountants to provide upward feedback to management rather than making evaluations a one-way street in which human behaviors are critiqued more than work competence.
