No room for advancement once you reach top level of pay scale.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – May 21, 2018
I came in with over 30 years legal experience but had not worked for a medical center before. I learned a lot about the workings of a hospital and the associated issues. Our job was to represent the medical staff - doctors, nurses and others who treated patients when they were sued for malpractice. I maintained the 180-day notice files, I arranged depositions and deposition prep sessions, working closely with multiple attorneys and doctors/assistants. I managed calendars, travel arrangements, payment of invoices for medical experts, performed timekeeping tasks, answered phones, distributed mail. I drafted documents for signature, worked in a document management system WorlDox, prepared documents in PowerPoint and Adobe.
Lots of changes in management, kind of an upheaval.
