"Best Job Ever."

"Corporate Culture, Stress Level, Great Management."
Pros: I like the people I work with. I love the office administrator she is very unique and understanding. I love the professionalism the firm has. I love that I'm given the chance to figure things out on my own, that I'm not degraded for making any mistakes, that I'm treated like an adult. I love the atmosphere. I like that I'm gaining experience in administrative work, that they are willing to train me.
Cons: I'm bored with a lot of the work that I do. It's repetitive. The switchboard can be overwhelming. The owner of the firm is extremely particular. It is hard dealing with 59 different personalities on a daily basis, not including clients who come in. I can't leave my desk when I need to even if just to use the restroom.
Pros: People relation. Schedule. Relation with coworkers.
Cons: Pay. Part time job.
Pros: The laid back environment and holidays off.
Cons: Family run. Too much drama. Feeling overworked for being here only 2 weeks.
Pros: I like the interaction with the patients.
Cons: Working after hrs and not getting pay for it.
"A day at the Office."
Pros: I like the challenge of something different, usually there is something new that arises and my skills need to be renewed in some aspect. Great secure work environment and fantastic boss. Pleasant work environment, never had a problem. Flexible hours. My phone is also the work phone so my employer does pay for the expenses.
Cons: It can be very stressful, sometimes working very late. My position has three positions included into one, so the work load is large. My role can be very demanding and having clients call at anytime can be rather annoying. My work never seems to stay at the office so to speak, I am always thinking of things I need to do, people to call etc. The patients in this particular area are very pushy and some really don't seem to appreciate how much I go out of my way to help with anything they ask, usually not part of my job description either. I do know that I go out of my way to help and offer to come in on my day off, so I assume I don't like to say 'no'
