Office Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 22, 2012
A typical day at work is dealing with customers and providing them with exceptional customer service.

I've learned how to Increase productivity of existing staff through team development opportunities, which resulted in lowering the cost of new employees by minimizing turnover and organize, conceptualize and executing a project, along with leading teams.

I proactively managed 5-member team, with accountability for creating job descriptions, recruiting and hiring, training, performing annual performance reviews, conducting weekly employee meetings and diplomatically implementing disciplinary actions.

The hardest part of the job was budgeting but once I got a good understanding of it works it was fine.

The most enjoyable part of the job was just coming to work everyday and positve atmosphere of the office.
Pros
free traveling to aspen
Cons
healthcare was expensive

Productive and a wonderful place to grow
Executive Administrative Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 16, 2012
Worked with senior team on different issues, ie: racism, youth development, housing etc. I learned how to work with a lot of different people from different backrounds. Working with management was a wonderful experience because there were several in different offices and different states. I enjoyed working with everyone at the Aspen Institute. A great class of caring people. The hardest part of the job was the end of the day and the most enjoyable part of the job was coming in to work and working on very important projects that made a difference.
Pros
free lunches, given extra time off when earned, bonuses
