What is it like working as a Graphic Artist / Designer?

Graphic Artist / Designer in Sydney:
"Working as a In-house Designer."
Pros: The freedom to be creative, have new different briefs across multiple fields of illustration and design and being able to draw and make work that will be published and distributed across the world.
Cons: Administrative tasks such as spreadsheets, setting files up for print, essentially the 'finished art' side. The lack of communication and reliability of the Creative director which causes my work to suffer and I have to continuously make up for his errors and mistakes.
