Office Administrator Reviews

What is it like working as an Office Administrator?
Office Administrator in Eugene:
"Fire Life."
Pros: During the summer months I work as a dispatcher for our wild land firefighting program. This is challenging, interesting, and exciting. I am able to bring my dog with me to work, and so far in his life we have not been separated. The office atmosphere is close, which can be good for morale.
Cons: Tension runs high in this office, and people usually create and spread rumors. The bosses do nothing to quell the panic of their employers and even seek to punish people who have been the victims of rumors. The bosses are aggressive and rarely around; they are prone to yelling, cursing and occasionally calling their employees names.
Office Administrator in Chicago:
"I Provide Administrative Support To An International Charity."
Pros: Freedom to adjust methods, interpersonal management.
Cons: Could be better communication, management could train/educate more effectively.
What is it like working as an Office Administrator at Edward Jones?
Office Administrator in Honolulu:
"Mixed Review."
Pros: Mostly great people and culture as a whole. Company has a great philosophy.
Cons: Training is mostly on the job. A person must come with innate ability to organize themselves. The work environment is as a whole determined by the Financial Adviser. Each office has only one Financial Adviser and one Branch Office Administrator. If the Financial Adviser is a good leader, the office tends to have a good vibe. If the Financial Adviser is immature, inexperienced, etc., the office suffers no matter how good the assistant is. Compensation is low compared to the amount of work both Financial Adviser and Administrative Assistant must accomplish.
What is it like working as an Office Administrator at Hanger Prosthetics & Orthotics Incorporated?
Office Administrator in Charlotte:

Pros: Helping patients and minimum supervision.
Cons: Not appreciated, no good incentives or bonus.
