    Current Employee - Executive Administrative Supervisor in Houston, TX

    I have been working at City of Houston full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been in my current position for about 8 years. I love coming to work everyday because there will always be something new and different. While working at the City of Houston I have earned about 8 promotions, however, I am seeking to continue to climb my career ladder to the very top.

    Cons

    Everyday is a challenge for me because of ongoing and new projects. This is a good thing because it keeps my work load fresh and exciting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listening is key to being a successful manager. Leading by example and always being fair, honest and legal will earn you respect and trust. When training a new employee, being exact and quick to correct their mistake right away on how your day-today business is handle will go a long way.
