Office Manager Reviews
Q: What is it like working as an Office Manager?
Office Manager in New York:
Pros: I like that I get to shape our company culture and that employee experience is dependent on me. I enjoy finding new ways to enrich the work experience of everyone in my office. I understand that most of the time my job is to make everyone else look good and a lot of times that means that I don't get a lot of recognition.
Cons: I don't like that I get very little feedback from my boss. Sometimes its really hard to deal with the needs of an entire office staff and the needs of the physical space, itself. In that way I feel a bit let down, because I don't think I have the full support I need to really do my job well.
