Office Administrator Reviews

What is it like working as an Office Administrator?

Office Administrator in Melbourne:
"Office conditions."
Pros: I am not constantly being watched over. I am able to do my job without being bothered a lot. Am able to take holidays usually when I ask.
Cons: The pay. That I feel like I am being made to feel less worthy of a pay rise than I think I am. Don't see any opportunity for growth.
