Office Manager Reviews

What is it like working as an Office Manager?
Office Manager in Chugiak:
"I Am In Charge Of The Full Functionality Of The Practice."
Pros: Working with the patients.
Cons: I believe I am severely underpaid.
Office Manager in Mountain View:
Pros: My co-workers are awesome, I've developed some great friendships here. I get ridiculously cool benefits, that I probably wouldn't get in most other places. Everyone brings their dogs to the office, so I get to interact with them. The informality of everything leads to a comfortable day-to-day working environment. I'm trusted to be allowed to do whatever I want. I get delicious healthy lunches for free and I even get to prank people with my companies money. I don't receive a whole lot of stress from this job. I've even been to my CEO's house multiple times to hang out.
Cons: No privacy; I have no door or walls, my desk is like a rotating door. I can't sit down for more than a couple minutes at a time before I need to go answer the door or am summoned by one of the engineers to check something for them. It makes it incredibly hard to focus and get much done in a streamlined and efficient manner. Other teams will dump inappropriate tasks on me because they assume I have nothing better to do with my time, and some even expect ridiculous things to be in my job description. Because the structure is informal, it means workplace politics aren't out in the open, they're shady and not always known, making it "clicky" and difficult to navigate.
Office Manager in New York:
"Office Manager."
Pros: I like that I get to shape our company culture and that employee experience is dependent on me. I enjoy finding new ways to enrich the work experience of everyone in my office. I understand that most of the time my job is to make everyone else look good and a lot of times that means that I don't get a lot of recognition.
Cons: I don't like that I get very little feedback from my boss. Sometimes its really hard to deal with the needs of an entire office staff and the needs of the physical space, itself. In that way I feel a bit let down, because I don't think I have the full support I need to really do my job well.
Office Manager in Woodland Hills:
"It's Stressful With Minimal Satisfaction."
Pros: Practicing great customer service.
Cons: The computer.
What is it like working as an Office Manager at Ashley Furniture Home Stores?
Office Manager in Arlington:
"A Good Job, Not Just A Career."
Pros: Once you learn the systems it is very easy. It is like working with family, everyone can disagree but. Still come together to get the job done.
Cons: Once you become the best they have ever seen in a position you will be forever stuck there. The owners have failed to keep up with the current market on compensation for employees in all positions.
