Fund Accounting = Brutal Experience, stay away, even if you're desperate, stay away.

Pros

Good name on the resume. I hear other departments other than Fund Accounting are excellent places to work, unfortunately I was stuck in Fund Accounting for a year.

Cons

-no transferable skills acquired -you learn very little -stay far away from Fund Accountant role, even if you are desperate for a job and get an offer from them as a Fund Accountant, keep looking for something elsewhere, it will be worth the wait.

Advice to Management

Take on less fund accountants and pay them more to do more work. the work is too spread out, i spent more than half of my day just staring at the computer screen.
