Accounting’s got the blues: Is there a cure?

Job security or no, seems like most Accounting pros aren’t loving their jobs at the moment. Only 23% of Accounting workers surveyed said they felt “engaged” in their jobs, and another 23% said they feel entirely “disengaged” from their work. That was the second lowest ranking of any job group according to study author BlessingWhite. Only IT workers were unhappier overall. 

No wonder why some may be feeling down in the dumps: With year-end’s crunch coming on, increased tax enforcement and most companies taking an even closer look at finances across the board, Accounting is under a lot of pressure. 

We want to know: Do you still look forward to work most days? What about your co-workers– are they dragging more often than not?

Even if you still love your job, we all have “those days” now and then. How do you keep your outlook positive when it happens? Share your ideas in the comments.

    I love my boss, he is the best. I love his boss and all the rest.
    I love my office and its location, I hate the have to go on vacation.
    I love my furniture, drab & grey, and piles of paper that grow each day.
    I think my job is really swell, there’s nothing else I love so well.
    I love to work among my peers, I love their leers, and jeers, and sneers.
    I love my computer and its software; I hug it often though it won’t care.
    I love each program and every file. I’d love them more if they worked a while.
    I’m happy to be here. I am. I am. I’m the happiest slave of the firm, I am.
    I love this work, I love these chores. I love the meetings with the deadly bores.
    I love my job – I’ll say it again – I even love those friendly men.
    Those friendly men who’ve come today, in clean white coats to take me away.
