Office Manager Reviews

What is it like working as an Office Manager?

Office Manager in Halifax:
"Good work environment."
Pros: The ability to have a say in what happens, not to far to travel. Nice environment.
Cons: Very Stressful at times. Owner very demanding.

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.

Office Manager in Waltham:
"Small Business Contractor."
Pros: Casual dress, people are fairly decent, my own office, I am helping the company progress, Boss is a good guy,
Cons: Benefits are minimal and very costly. Commute is very long. Lack of teamwork. A lot of baby sitting grown men. I am qualified to be making more money. No 401k, stock option, profit sharing.

Office Manager in San Francisco:
"Office Culture."
Pros: I enjoy the company's standard as a whole. I believe the founders have a strong idea on what type of presence they want to make. I enjoy working for such an innovative firm and look forward to growing with them.
Cons: The formality of having employees has not yet been established. This company used to employee only 1099 employees and has now started to switch over to having W2 employees. As a result there have been a lot of questions about procedures.
