We employ some 5,500 people worldwide. And while they may all join us with very different skills and backgrounds, they have much in common. They’re eager to contribute – be that a fresh insight, a novel idea or a well-thought-through plan; they love pulling together as a team; and they care deeply about the patients we serve. What’s more, they’re determined to develop themselves as well as our business. Have a look at the routes the careers of just a few of them have taken.
Senior Financial Analyst
It's not often that an accountant believes their work makes a difference to people's lives. I like to think I play a small part in making sure our products reach the patients who need them. That's one reason why working here gives me a sense of accomplishment. Other reasons include the feeling I add value and knowing I've grown professionally, thanks to the different projects and systems I've experienced, the certifications I've completed and the analysis I've been part of.
I think relationships are key to success. And the best part about working at our site is the people. Like me, many of us have worked at Mallinckrodt for 15 years or more through mergers, acquisitions, system integrations and other major changes. We’ve shared our lives professionally and personally. We’ve become a family.
My current role involves everything from managing the Manufacturing Accountant, month-end closings and Sarbanes Oxley audits to developing the operating budget, delivering financial analysis and acting as Finance lead for R&D projects, new product launches and contract manufacturing.
While supervising a small team and carrying out day-to-day work, I helped develop the operating budget, acted as the Finance lead on Sarbanes Oxley audits and completed two projects that saved us $50k. I was also the financial team lead on a Business Planning and Control System ERP implementation – one of the biggest challenges of my career – and became Six Sigma Green Belt certified.
My work involved analyzing variances and overhead spending, managing capital expenditures and carrying out fixed asset audits. I was also the financial team lead when we implemented a fully integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) package. In the middle of all that, I passed the CMA (Certified Management Accountant) exam.
I spent my time developing skill sets, analyzing the financial results of product lines, learning processes and procedures, and understanding the manufacturing accounting system. Once I mastered manufacturing accounting and understood the organization, I was able to move into roles that involved management, leadership and ownership of financial results.
