Web Administrator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Web Administrator?

Web Administrator in Fredonia:
"Perform adminstration for public website."
Pros: Gratitude from colleagues for the ease of use of tools and training.
Cons: Fighting for my job duties and direction of my career.

Web Administrator in Martinsville:
"I enjoy building and maintaining web pages."
Pros: It's flexible, some of the people are polite, and where I am, it's a quiet place to work. I like having control over my own work. I can log in anytime to access reports on what I do daily. And it's neat to see the finished result of a nice, stunning and smooth-running website that I created.
Cons: No one communicates. Especially to me. So I get told about every 8 weeks or so, that I'm not doing my job when they don't even have a clue as to what job I'm doing or not doing! I have to save every note, every document and show them whenever they see it fit to come find me and finally ask me how I'm doing in my job. Sad, this business may fail someday, due to the lack of communication between the employees. Thanks to one or two people's personal vendetta's or uncalled for rudeness to others they simply do not like.

Web Administrator in Plantation:
"My Worth."
Pros: Flexibility and Benefits. Learning and management experience.
Cons: Pay and no room for growth within the company at this time.
