Current Employee - Office Assistant
Current Employee - Office Assistant
Recommends
Approves of CEO

Pros

I go to school there so it's very convenient. The pay is great since they know students would rather be studying.

Cons

The hours do not always work but they are usually flexible. Sometimes the workplace is a little boring in terms of the conversation.

Advice to Management

More communication to the staff because sometimes it seems as if the people higher up kind of neglect those who work below them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits like vacation (2 weeks first year, 3 after that and they let you accrue a lot of time off before you have to use it). Tuition reimbursement is great and they pre-pay $750 of the tuition for your first class.

    Cons

    There isn't much room for advancement for administrative assistants so you're pretty much pigeonholed into that role for your department, even if you excel in other areas, like web design.
