Medical Assistant in Lakewood:
"Can Be Stressful But Rewarding."
Pros: Learning new things. Nothing really.
Cons: Not getting compensated for all the consistent hard work. New responsibility, no compensation. The office politics. Stress level is very high. Some people don't pull their own weight. There are no perks. There is no management at all. Office conditions are unstable.
