What is it like working as an Office Manager?
Office Manager in Reston:
"Great place to work, if you're in it for the right reasons.."
Pros: I love my coworkers. We are very much so a family that looks out for its own. The owner of the practice does his best to maintain an honest, ethical business. Working with animals and other animal lovers has been very personally rewarding.
Cons: Overworked and underpaid. At times, expectations of employees are unrealistic. I constantly pick up the slack of others and go well beyond my job role to help the owner. This is a common theme here. Most everyone is expected to pick up additional responsibilities/projects that are outside the perimeters of their job description and without additional compensation.

I take care of the patients (billing, front desk, phones, appointments, insurance), I do all the cleaning, prepping of rooms and equipment. I help with treatments and do the laundry. I am also head of marketing. (built entire website from the ground up) I do outside marketing, shopping for supplies throughout the office.
