Productive, rewarding, great place to work.
Pros: great company benefits such as insurance, paid time off, sick leave, 401k, opportunity to interact and help people from all walks of life.
A typical day at work entails logging on to my computer, checking calendars of bosses, checking and responding to personal e-mail and boss' e-mail, abstracting pertinent information from
newspaper for boss, opening and sorting snail mail,answering the phone, greeting all who come into the administrative office, making copies, scanning and sending faxes – more... as needed, taking minutes at daily meetings, processing invoices, logging requests for information,logging employees' time for payroll,preparing for next meeting arranging food, meeting room, speakers, etc., making travel arrangements for boss and others, keeping organizational chart, disaster roster and leadership rosters up to date.
I've learned to prioritize my "to do list" doing the most urgent and important first.
Management is great about not micromanaging but giving clear expectations and deadlines and leaving the rest up to employee.
Co-workers show respect and are helpful and team players.
Hardest part of my job is taking complaints when the patient advocate is not available.
The most enjoyable part of my job is being helpful to my boss in whatever way I am needed and can help. – less
