SalesForce.com Administrator Reviews

What is it like working as a SalesForce.com Administrator?
SalesForce.com Administrator in Greensboro:
"Challenging And Cutting Edge."
Pros: Being a SFDC administrator combines my three strongest skills: technology, sales, and teaching. In addition to the work, my supervisor acts as a mentor who is set on grooming me for management.
Cons: When we're re not working on projects it's easy to get bored with the day to day "help desk" support we provide for our users. Training new employees who have a high turnover rate is also tedious work.
