Rochester, New York, USA, Finance, General Ledger Accountant
On her business group:
My area makes sure the general ledger detail is posted and accurately reflects what users enter. The general ledger is updated with any changes that are requested, such as description changes or new centers needed. We verify on a monthly basis that our financial results are accurate and we work with the corporate office in the transition of this detail. We offer additional tools so that users can access their financial information.
On her role:
There are many users that do not have an Oracle license because they don’t do enough activity within Oracle. They still have entries that need to be entered into the GL. I make sure that their entries get posted into Oracle, in a timely manner. I also prepare the Balance Sheet Causals during the close process. I work with various individuals that are responsible for various balance sheet accounts to explain any large variances that are needed for month end. I process GL maintenance changes that are requested through SharePoint, into Oracle. I create various reports that can pull the financial data that is needed.
Other roles in her group:
Some of the people in my group are Accounting Manager, who is responsible for the entire group. The General Ledger Manager, who is responsible for Oracle as well as other tasks. General Ledger Supervisor, who also works within Oracle as well as other tasks. General Ledger Accountant, works in Oracle and does other tasks. Accounting Analyst, works on submissions and projects our group is involved in.
On her team:
The team is a group of people that work well together. There is a lot of work that is done as a group.
Best part of the job:
My favorite part of the job is the fact that I get to work closely with Oracle. I have many years of experience using Oracle. Now I get to learn a few more things and I can use my knowledge to see if there may be additional things in Oracle that we may want to implement.
Why she joined Xerox:
I came to Xerox because it was a large company that was using Oracle General Ledger, which I had extensive knowledge of.
On her future at Xerox:
I am excited about being here and I think that I have a long future here. I am in the process of getting my CMA (Certified Management Accountant) and I see that Xerox places a high value on that. I think this will only help me in my future here.
