Q: What is it like working as an Office Manager?

Office Manager in Morgan Hill:
"Brave New World."
Pros: Exposure to an increasing scope of people. Learning new languages and traveling. Challenges of new projects.
Cons: The time change between Europe and the US. Travel safety concerns. The occasional technical glitch that impedes production.

Office Manager in Boston:
"Independent Work With An Ever Changing Workload."
Pros: Good atmosphere and a brand/mission I believe in.
Cons: What I am currently being paid seems a bit low for the area.

Office Manager in Paw Paw:
"How stressful it would be."
Be prepared to be stressed out and deal with a lot of crazy people.

Office Manager in Tampa:
"Busy Multi-Tasking Office Manager."
Pros: Busy, fast paced. Working with people (patients, employees) outside reps.
Cons: Work load outweighs hours in a day.

Office Manager in Conyers:
"Office Management."
Pros: I like doing administrative work and I enjoy working with my coworkers. Flexibility.
Cons: The pay and the fact that there are no benefits, perks or incentives. No raises but more work always being added. Also, the fact that no matter how long you are with the company you never get more than a week vacation.

Office Manager in Albuquerque:
"The People Here Are Great."
Pros: I like the people that I work with. We are all focused on similar goals, and are team oriented - for the most part. We have a casual office environment. My Managers are easy to talk to, and are very supportive of my decisions. Our office is very dynamic, and every day has new challenges and opportunities to learn something new. Never a dull moment! While my position is very stressful at times, we always pull through the hard times and have more good than bad.
Cons: I don't like it when certain tasks fall through the cracks when we let someone go. I work very hard to help cover all important task for positions that we do not have filled, but that can become overwhelming at times.

Office Manager in Chicago:
Pros: If the people you work with are kind and understanding it can be a joy to go to work. It's nice to know how much control you have as an office manager and how much trust your employers place in you. Plus it pays a lot better than most jobs newly graduated young adults find.
Cons: Dealing with lawyers can be incredibly stressful. Working in a small office (<5) can mean having to deal with a great deal of micro-managing and the workload falls entirely on the office manager's shoulders. There are a lot of weekend and night hours to get all the work done.
