Office Manager Reviews

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

June 2014
"Office Manager."
Office Manager:
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.

Office Manager:
Pros: Decent benefits, decent work environment, flexible hours.
Cons: No privacy; I have no door or walls, my desk is like a rotating door. I can't sit down for more than a couple minutes at a time before I need to go answer the door or am summoned by one of the engineers to check something for them. It makes it incredibly hard to focus and get much done in a streamlined and efficient manner. Other teams will dump inappropriate tasks on me because they assume I have nothing better to do with my time, and some even expect ridiculous things to be in my job description. Because the structure is informal, it means workplace politics aren't out in the open, they're shady and not always known, making it "clicky" and difficult to navigate.
