I am having an issue with my boss. His designation is OPERATIONS MANAGER and he thinks too much about himself. He always passes nasty comments about the company general manager and the CEO. I am fed up of hearing all these on a daily basis, but has no other option than...

We are trying to track manufacturer coupons and payments. Currently use an excel spreadsheet but with 35 stores this has become difficult. Does anyone have ideas how we can streamline this process?

I talk with lots of CFO’s, both employed, unemployed, employed but looking and consultants (looking for consulting gigs, looking for employment, both, none; you have the idea).  I’ve been hearing a practice that has risen to new heights of myopia, the...

Are you invisible?  Don’t laugh.  If your resume is not generating interest, you may as well be invisible.  If your resume is not read do you exist?  If your resume is not read and its content appreciated, your job-search is dead in the water....

It seems (reported in CFO, June 2014) that the PCAOB stopped trying to institute a mandatory Auditor Rotation. However the EU enacted that same concept, with the term limit of 10 years (plus additional rules and caveats). Do you think they (PCAOB/SEC) should limit...
