Mind-numbing

Client Operations Administrator (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

ProsPaid vacation
Team-oriented work environment
Location
Great benefits
Corporate community
Business casual dress code

ConsSalary
Location
Only really busy during month end, rest of the month is dead boring
Repetitive work
Not much communication from management

If you're looking for a challenging job, this is not for you. Same things are done each and every day, the same way every time. Like the title says, extremely mind-numbing work

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
