How big is your accounting department?

  • 1.  How big is your accounting department?

    Good Morning!  I am looking to gather some information regarding the size of accounting departments in relation to revenue volume (and number of jobs).

    I work for a commercial GC with revenues in the neighborhood of $60mm each year - the number of jobs we do can range from 20-30 per year.  Our larger contracts are typically no more than $10mm, but we have jobs that are under $500,000 as well.

    We currently have an accounting department of three people - myself (Controller), and two individuals who are mainly in charge of payables and payroll.

    How large is your company?  And how big is your accounting department?  Also, if you're willing, can you tell me what each individual is responsible for?

    Thanks in advance for the input!
