Working alongside Engineers
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 13, 2012
My typical day at work consists of maintaining three Senior Associates calendar, answer and screening calls, booking conference rooms for meetings throughout the day, updating our phone list and CCM to add contact information so they can see it on their Blackberries. There are times I would have to create spreadsheets so we can track proposals and invoices that go out. Every month, on the fifteenth day, I call clients to make sure they have received invoices and find out if they have any questions. Also, I help them with their flights, hotel reservations, and car service when needed. There are days where I run several reports and send them out to various clients that request them. There are so many responsibilities I take on, but I named the ones that were most important.
There is nothing hard about the job. There are days that it can be downright crazy. There are deadlines that have to be met, so prioritizing plays a big role at this company.
we have bagel fridays every friday, christmas bonus and party every year, we have a bowling tournament on the wii every year around spring, company picnic, softball, bring your child to work day, and other activities
breaks are short. lunch is 45 mins which is not enough time if you work in the city.
