I am responsible for a variety of tasks and that list is always growing. The environment is casual but also professional. I am always busy and never bored. I am in a leadership role and am responsible for setting a positive example for the team. I am responsible for creating processes an procedures to help make the company run efficiently.
Cons: My job title grows and I don't get compensated for the additional work I take on. I feel like I am being taken for granted sometimes. Sometimes there isn't enough time in the day to get everything done and I am only one person. I feel like I have to pick up the slack for others. I don't feel appreciated for what I do or recognized for how much I do.

"Pro active self starter."
Pros: I like the that I can come and go as I please, that I can do some work from home if needed. If I am sick, it does not count against me, my boss trust me with everything. I pretty much have free reign to do what I need to do both personally and professionally.
Cons: I have no real authority to ensure employee hiring process is complete before they start working. Little support from boss to ensure the hiring process is done correctly causing a lot of knee jerk reactions to get things accomplished. Typically the only one in the office, no one to bounce ideas off of. Little direction from boss or other managers, seems they think I can read their minds. Things just laid on my desk with no idea of what they want done. I just have to make an educated guess.
