Pros: free snacks, coffee, sense of community, potlucks on holidays, and decorations on holidays as well
Cons: common area could get too noisy during morning time
A typical day at work involved arriving very early in the morning and diving right into the daily work routine, which included checking e-mails, ensuring that conference rooms and resources were available for the day and week's requirements. Update any changes, enter a high volume of information referent to expense reports, purchase orders, agreement – more... information, invoices, etc., into their respective spreadsheets/database.
Frequent contact with other departments such as Accounts Payable in ensuring that orders were processed and submitted timely for payment.
I worked in a diverse environment with people from various educational and cultural backgrounds which has contributed to the dynamic atmosphere of the office.
The most challenging part of the job was the volume of both electronic as well as hard copy invoices which I was responsible for processing before submitting for approval and then payment. However, thankfully because of my excellent time management skills and ability to prioritize, coupled with my commitment to always getting to work on time, I was never overwhelmed or fell behind in completing my duties.
I enjoyed coming to work because the environment was very friendly and light, people had a commitment to those we served and we truly enjoyed our work. – less
