Larson Tax and Financial
If you like to work for a psychopath, work for Barbara Larson at Larson Tax and Financial in Broomfield, Colorado. She treats her assistants / Receptionist so badly that it can definitely be classified as Verbal Abuse. I still hear her terrible words replay in my head every now and then.
All of her complaints and attacks to me were personal, involving family, how time is volunteered, personality traits, and that her clients are there to see her, not me, and that I shouldn’t be too friendly.
She hires assistants, barely trains them and yells (using the worst profanity I have ever heard) at them for their inadequacies. She has gone through more than a dozen in a few years (maybe in less time than that). She brags about how she brought them all to tears.
I learned from her daughter that she used to be on medication, but Barbara proudly states that she is not taking it anymore (her largest mistake- ever). One day she will be nice and offer buy lunch, or let you leave to tend to a family issue. The next day, or hour.., will rub it in your face and tell you how you are an awful employee and how she is always taken advantage of.
NEVER ACCEPT any type of favor from her. Barbara speaks so terrible about her clients (her bread and butter), she avoids phone calls from them, puts off doing work for them (and vacations are always a priority). However, she is always available to her few VERY rich clients who invest with her, or have the potential to invest with her. She has even “lost it” in front of clients, then will blame the assistant for her bad behavior. When she is not blaming you, she is blaming her terrible childhood and terrible mother for her bad behavior. Knowing she has issues, she seeks professional help – which is not helping (I am sure she is not truthful about how she behaves).
Her poor Daughter and Daughter – in – law work part time for her. I know they would love to do their own thing and are trying to work in that direction, buying their own businesses and pursuing further education to do what they are passionate about. But they seem to always get persuaded to return. If it were not for them, her business would have died LONG ago….. Her children have joked about how they do a pool on how long an assistant will last…. Funny – NOT! Not when you are on the receiving end of the worst verbal abuse imaginable.
She has colleges in her same profession, which have experienced her, and also say she is “psycho” and unstable.
She maybe looking for a new assistant soon…. Please do not believe her lies when she hires you….. She will tell you she is difficult…. She doesn’t tell you that you will be working in, what I and other assistants have called, HELL.
