A real pleasure to have worked for
PA to two Managing Directors / Team Secretary (Former Employee) – London – 10 June 2014
A typical day at work - highly organisational role, heaps of diary management / meeting / lunch / travel arrangements and phone liaising. Some days quiet allowing for the mundane tasks, whilst others totally manic, not knowing which way to turn.
What I learned - be a gatekeeper, one step ahead at all times, take criticism constructively.
Management - very approachable, hardworking and respected their staff. Very supportive, they worked with their teams, rather than against them - that goes a long way.
Co-workers - a majority, you could really have a scream / banter with. Though there was a low percentage who were quite pretentious - but I guess you get them everywhere!
The hardest part of the job - for me personally, I did not feel as though I was being challenged and felt frustrated.
The most enjoyable part of the job - my role was a highly organisational role. I love to organise! The company and the staff were a real pleasure to work for and with. Although we worked hard, we still made time for banter and laughs! At the time, it was a very sociable company to work for.
