Q: What is it like working as an Administrative Assistant?

December 2013
"Bunch of misfits."
Administrative Assistant:
Pros: No micromanaging involved and great benefits.
Cons: There's a bunch of misfits and people don't know what they're doing and they're title is "manager" without managing employees.
December 2013

Make sure you are passionate about your work, dedicated and diligent.

"Give an Employer an Inch, They'll Take Your Life."
Administrative Assistant:
Find an alternate career...something that makes you happy.
December 2013
"Lack Of Benefits"
Administrative Assistant:
This is an excellent job if you enjoy working with patients. It is, however, not good employment for building a pension or if you are the main 'bread winner' of the family. Most physicians pay much less than the average wage for a two-year college certificate.
December 2013
"Calm And Friendly Office."
Administrative Assistant:
Pros: Everyone is friendly, my boss is very nice and understanding, also close to home.
Cons: Boring, un-fulfilling and does not align with my interests.
January 2014
"Admin And Account Executive."
Administrative Assistant:
Pros: Culture. Colleagues. Work environment. Flexibility.
Cons: No growth. No other employee benefits. No perks/yearly bonus etc.
December 2013
"Administrative Work."
Administrative Assistant:
Pros: I like processing the invoices and the record keeping. I like that it has flexible hours and that I am mostly left to do my own work and not overly monitored.
Cons: I do not like filling in for the receptionist for long periods of time. I am not too fond of the corporate atmosphere and the closed in cubicles. Too many people in the company to be able to get to know everyone.
