What is it like working as an Office Manager?
Office Manager in Livingston:
Pros: What I like most about my job is the leadership and development training they offer, the continuity of teamwork, my co-workers, the positive culture, learning curves, work flexibility and opportunity for growth.
Cons: What I like least about my job is the politics that are greatly involved, the undesirable salary and unfair practices; such as, my word against yours, how important it is to have everything in writing to cover yourself.
Office Manager in Nephi:
"Management, working with others."
Pros: I love working with employees and sharing partners in our company. I enjoy solving problems and helping people progress and find ease in receiving their products. I enjoy helping making others happy and helping them to see new opportunities and new ways of thinking.
Cons: Lack of communication from executive staff. Sitting at a desk most of the day.
Office Manager in Westborough:
"Office Manager Overview."
Pros: I enjoy managing patient flow. I also do my best to handle patient issues and concerns with compassion and professionalism. This is an area I like- making dissatisfied clients feel heard, listened to and valued.
Cons: Its a small practice so when things are tense for any reason between anyone, the whole office is affected. It can be a pretty stressful environment.
Office Manager in Hawthorne:
"It's hard enough without being stressful."
Pros: I like the consistent hours and the regular paycheck. The fact that I know I have weekends off is reassuring.
Cons: It get repetitive and you start praying for 5 o'clock to get here as soon as possible.
Office Manager in Campbell:
"I only ask to be paid as much as I am valuable."
Pros: I love most the experience I am gaining. With no real guidance of how my position should be, I have created the beginnings of the foundations for two of the three job descriptions in the company. Mine, the position of Office Manager and the position of the AV Installation Technician.
Cons: There is absolutely no foundation of guidelines. Each employee acts as a free agent who makes up their own rules along the way. I am creating a Policies and Procedures for our positions and hope to start on something real, legitimate and clear. Everyone feels they deserve more for the nature of the work that the technicians do. I personally feel like I deserve more because I have gotten the company to place where it has never been. You would be surprised to see this 20 year old idea exist as it does. No systems or any sort, no guidines to follow, just complete disarray.
