Operations Manager:
Pros: The challenges and having the ability to lead the company and influence change, above anything. It's fast paced, chaotic at times, and quite varied. I deal with something different everyday.
Cons: Dealing with anxiety and issues of fellow staff, having no budget to make significant changes that need to be made, having to micromanage due to staff not managing their time properly at times

"Saving your sanity while loving your job."
Operations Manager:
Learn to fly by the seat of your pants and roll with the punches. I work in a fluid environment where there is a crisis on a daily basis.Take time to decompress other wise you will find yourself consumed by the fires you are required to put out. For those in real estate and property management.. Build a network of reliable tradespeople, they are worth their weight in gold. Pay them in a timely manner and treat them with respect. I love the variety, adrenaline pumping action of problem solving while keeping my eye on the ball of always increasing the bottom line. Good luck and have fun.
