Not a Good Place to Work for an Administrative Professional
Admin Support (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 8, 2016
This company is an extremely challenging place to work if you are an administrative professional. You are required to jump through hoops just to accomplish simple goals. The majority of the tasks that you are pressured to accomplish should be handled by HR, not an admin. Another downside is employees here seem generally unhappy. There is a sense of gloom and trepidation that is palpable. I would say the work/life balance was decent, but I couldn't personally benefit from this because of the intense workload associated with my department. It really depends on the manager you have. My manager was afraid to rock the boat and go against the status quo, so this caused a lot of undue stress on the employees beneath her. Many of the admins currently there are mature and have been with the company since they were out of high school or in their early 20s. I think they have stayed this long because they honestly don't know how great it can be outside of this company. They are rooted where they are and have become complacent. That is unfortunate.
Competitive salary, good benefits
High turnover of executive management, stressful work environment
