Controller background


    Controllers are self-disciplined and fast-paced— always driving themselves to get things right. Controllers are typically straightforward, responsible and factual. They work hard to develop technical expertise, respect authority and operate within established guidelines.

    Signature work styles

    Keep calm and ask the Controller. The Controller is always on top of every detail. They have a copy of the rulebook memorized and are continuously monitoring all of your data for compliance—so whatever your question might be, they can usually give you a quick, factual answer. They are very decisive, but are also sticklers for the letter of the law. Don’t ask them to make a wild guess, take a crazy risk, or break the rules for you.
