Executive Assistant in Buffalo:
"Miserable: Not What I Signed Up For."
Pros: Most of the people are very nice and I enjoy them.
Cons: My skills aren't utilized. I am unappreciated. Agreed to fill two roles until a new person was hired for one of them. People do not treat me as an intelligent person, all I'm good for is printing/copies/mailing. I'm a better writer than a lot of people here. No one listens to me or respects my opinion or knowledge, even on basic things. Incredibly micro-managed. Feel inferior, unmotivated, without hope.
