Favorite job, would still be there if company was not sold.
Sr. Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Boston, MASeptember 24, 2013
Pros: managers were supportive and great to work for/with
Cons: industry had difficult times.
One of the best positions I have had in my 23 years experience as an Executive Assistant. Worked for 9 personality diverse managers who I have yet to come across since. Autonomous position as they each traveled approximately 75% of the time.

I learned exceptional organization, computer, client service, travel arranging, meeting/event coordinating skills – more... as well as patience and understanding of specific needs per person.

The hardest part of the job was leaving. The company was sold by Marsh and Mac to Great West and our department was dissolved. – less
