Personal Assistant Reviews

What is it like working as a Personal Assistant?

Personal Assistant in New South Wales (NSW):
"Use This Job As A Stepping Stone To A Higher Position."
Pros: It's great working for just one person or a small close group. It can be a great way to gain experience from a successful person and move into a higher role.
Cons: It can be very stressful. If you don't get along with your boss it's a much bigger deal than not getting along with your boss in a large company since you're working closely with that one person. It can be dissatisfying doing a lot of hard work for someone else and seeing them reap the benefits whilst you're only paid a salary with small commission.

Personal Assistant in Newcastle:
"Personal Assistant."
Pros: Working with a team of passionate and enthusiastic people.
Cons: The Directors are disorganized and have poor management and communication skills.
