No two days were ever the same. Senior Management found ways to bring positive morale to the staff.
Administrative Specialist/Coordinator (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – January 20, 2014
There really wasn't a "typical" day at work, unless it was 'payroll Monday'. Otherwise, days were varied, depending on what immediate needs and priorities were. I learned that Teamwork is critical when trying to achieve large goals. Teamwork led to adapting to and accepting other's opinions, views. Diversity was critical and valued.
Management were supportive of employees and found ways to show them that they were valued, even when (especially when) the Organization went through a four-year wage freeze.
Co-workers were friendly, although at times unreceptive. There were many employees who had long-standing employment at the Organization and didn't know what the real work world was like. There were many, on the other hand, who genuinely cared about serving clients and meeting their needs.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with negativity. I was as a cheerleader-of-sorts most days and tried to bring encouragement to all I encountered. The most enjoyable part of my job was helping others (typically coworkers) and training them on methods, software, etc. I also really enjoyed the variety that my job offered and being involved in many aspects of the organization's planning and executive duties.
Benefits were exceptional
