What I do
As a fund accountant, my job involves tracking the Pioneer mutual funds through various reporting processes to ensure account holders receive the correct share value. Because our department is organized into teams, I'm responsible for a specific group of funds.
The benefit of on the job experience
While my educational background is in finance, I initially worked at Pioneer as an intern during college. It gave me the opportunity to learn about the financial services industry and how it operates. My managers at the time helped me immensely. They even set up interviews for me. I'm very thankful for that experience. And the knowledge I gained played an important role in helping me land this job after graduation.
What I enjoy most about working at Pioneer is its culture. It's a very friendly, laid-back environment. People work hard, but are very supportive of one another and managers truly want you to succeed. It's what makes me want to stay.
Room for growth
Pioneer is a growing company-we've had several acquisitions over the last few years-which I believe will lead to continued opportunity for advancement. It's a great place to start your career because it gives you exposure to a broad array of business areas. I'm always learning and using my skills in new ways.
