Controller at 90? In NYC? Sounds more like a cashier position at a bodega

Controller seems like a pleasant spin on the actual role, which is basically property accountant. I only have 2.5 years of work experience... made senior last sept.

Job titles in private aren't as structured as PA. I've interviewed for senior accountant that have deeper responsibilities that manager/controller postings. Generally speaking, if it's the next level up, you'll have supervisory and/or systems/process implementation responsibilities. My advice, don't jump for a title alone. My priority was looking for learning opportunities and career growth potential.

Thoughts?

Go for it

Ask for more money

Go for it!

Recommend against it, that's a glorified bookkeeping job by the pay

Anyone else guilty of poisoning new hires viewpoints?? Some of em just asked me so many questions and I wanna be honest with them. Like sorry Timmy pls don’t ask me “what happens when ‘politics’ come up in the work place” on a call of 30 other new hires next time so I don’t have to say that “we basically let our bosses say that we don’t talk about politics then he proceeds to talk about politics and then we talk about politics”. (The hiring committee person literally cut me off after this 🤣)
