    Pros

    Great mission, strong values, continual learning is encouraged, salary is higher than industry, benefits are good, commute subsidy, snacks and coffee. WFH

    Cons

    does not cover maternity or paternity leave, you have to take a leave of absence.

    Advice to Management

    Treat Executive Assistants as executive partners, not administrative support and provide the same KPI's as core leaders, since we are part of the driving force to meeting organization goals and are a critical part of exec team. BTW, include your EA as part of the Exec Team and ask for our opinions, they matter, as we have the pulse of the people. Weed out bad management faster.

    Pros

    Great benefits, mostly great people to work with, flexible schedules, central location, the trick is getting on the right team that empowers their staff.

    Cons

    Management seems to be less and less concerned with well being of staff. Lots of negative turnover and occasional lay offs. Many people quitting managers, not the organization. Downsizing has made it more difficult to move positions within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Necessary changes to become profitable and continue the mission are understandable, but management should be caring, professional, and respectful during the process.
