As an accountant, you’ll work in teams to prepare journal entries and reconcile ledger accounts, analyze monthly financial reporting, and effectively communicate results to your managers and senior leaders. You’ll manage the legal entity monthly reporting process and collaborate with other groups (Tax, Treasury, Finance) as well as utilize your accounting and analytical knowledge to implement more effective and efficient monthly processes. In this role you’ll work through complex problems where analysis of situations or data requires an in-depth evaluation of various factors. In our ever-changing business and industry, you will be involved in providing accounting support for complex Merger & Acquisition activity and the implementation of new applicable ASC regulatory changes. Our organization utilizes Oracle for recording ledger activity and HFM for consolidated reporting.
As an internal auditor, you’ll support AT&T Audit Services by jumping right in and functioning as a member of an audit team responsible for the end-to-end planning, fieldwork and reporting on an assigned engagement. You’ll collaborate with your team to understand a given area of the business, scope the project, develop and perform necessary analyses, and communicate observations and insights that are shared with business leaders across the company—even the Audit Committee within the AT&T Board of Directors! Your curiosity and critical thinking skills will come in handy as you gather relevant information from key stakeholders. Your data literacy will help you discover and apply a variety of data analysis methods specific to each project. You’ll refine your communication skills as you share your findings with various audiences (including our Chief Audit Executive). The breadth of potential projects will expose you to a variety of areas and leaders across AT&T as you experience firsthand how to apply methods and procedures unique to the internal audit profession while helping AT&T identify and mitigate risk.
