We're the business partners protecting you from making bad decision, we protect you from putting the company at risk and doing illegal things.

But no, we're just a pain in your side, not your partner. We're an annoyance by stating facts that your budget simply cannot fund 3 more high cost engineers. We're trying to save you from a restructuring.

We modeled out your business plan and said it's not going to return the ROI you think it will. We suggest an alternative that will. We're still the bad guy. Sorry we annoyed you with our friendship you fucking assholes.

Also not banking finance people I mean like corporate finance people.

They made me pay two cents (literally) because my travel expenses report was missing that amount. They even told my supervisor about it.

Most hated department at my company.

Are you the guys making decisions about "streamlining the workforce" (meaning layoffs) so bigshots can get their bonuses?
