"Salary Review."

Pros: Variety and being the most knowledgeable person in the department concerning a lot of work related issues and manage the department's finances.
Cons: Having to do the work of everyone else in the department because my colleagues are either lazy or incompetent. This including staying late and working through lunch while colleagues take lunch, go home early and are on Facebook while I am doing their work. All while earning less than anyone else in the department.
