Office Manager Reviews

Q: 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.

Office Manager in Erie:
"Church Worker."
Pros: The quiet atmosphere, the people in general a very nice, a very nice environment to work in.
Cons: The compensation.

Office Manager in Monrovia:
"Office conditions."
Pros: I love my job! I love what I do, what I represent, the team I work with, the patients I have, etc.
Cons: The pay and the gratuity. I do everything there is to do in regards to the entire office. As well as doing assignments he gives me for his other office. I take care of everything. 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. I get no overtime, no benefits, no vacation time and no 401k. I do so much for this office and feel that I am unappreciated and under compensated.

Office Manager in Seattle:
"It's not what I thought I'd be doing."
Pros: Honestly, I don't like my job and I don't think most office managers like their jobs. They just do it, because they either never had another interest or had too many interests and didn't know what else to do. It's the kind of job that lands on you, because you aren't making any decisions. I make the best of it and I work hard, so I can make good money at it, but I'm working hard to go into something else, so I never have to do this again.
Cons: It's demanding, boring, tedious, you're under paid and under appreciated. Learn a new trait and do something better.

Office Manager in Boston:
"People focused office."
Pros: Helping people; selling people products that will help them; billing process, revenue collection.
Cons: Pay and benefits, small team, can only take vacation when boss takes it.
