Not A Good Place to Work

Advanced Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
Lincolnshire, IL

I worked at Hewitt Associates

ProsManagement does not attend to the matters of the Support Staff when there is a problem. Just a horrible experience and no respect.

ConsI was brought in and told I would be supporting at the max. 4 Senior Consultants. But I ended up supporting at least 10 -15 consultants in total. Then, there was no formal training on what the processes and procedures were. I was "instructed" by one other administrative assistant, who was not happy with the addition of a new, competent administrative assistant. So therefore, training never happened. I had to "figure how things were done" on my own. Only a few other admins. were willing to assist me when I had questions. The entire experience was not professional at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn my situation, it seems that Management did not want to bring any actions against this person, because she had been with the company for years. That is not fair, to a extremely fair and good Support person. Give clear information when hiring and make sure that proper training and ongoing mentoring is available. The ability to have a mentor that will work with you and not against you should be monitored by Senior Management and action taken if necessary. Appropriate action should be taken, even if the adverse person has been with the company for years. Support staff is an important part of a team, and if they are not being treated with respect, it affects everyone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
