Office Manager in Rockwall:
Pros: I love the work environment and the opportunities to grow in the company. My coworkers are wonderful, and my boss is very understanding about doctor appointments and leave. I love learning and being cross trained. Because the owner is my brother-in-law, I am sometimes paid to babysit my niece.
Cons: Since this is a small business, I am cross trained to do bookkeeping, payroll, tax preparation, and am the front desk receptionist on top of my normal office manager tasks. I help my co-workers, but I rarely get the help I need during busy season to complete the extra work. I do not feel appreciated.
Office Manager in Kingston:
"I was given a glowing review."
Pros: I like the people I work with and supervise. It is a fulfilling job and an OK atmosphere most of the time.
Cons: I don't like the communication with the owners. They do not seem to actually appreciate me. I feel as though I'm just a name on paper and do not have supervisory roles. I'm not actually able to perform as a Office Manager should. It is a very stressful position that I'm in and I feel I have way more responsibilities than what I'm getting paid for.

"Office Management in a Nutshell."
Pros: Working with people, keeping busy while multitasking and taking on projects to help enhance the office needs as much as possible.
