Fast paced productive work environment. Excellent company to work for!
Pros: fun company outings, great morale in the company overall, to show their appreciation of our hard work we were always awarded office lunches, cakes and all sorts of other great treats and outings.
Cons: none that i can think of. if was truly a great place to work!
Once I arrived in the office, my daily duties were to make sure that all office equipment was working properly and replace necessary toners, fill paper trays, worked with IT daily to replace the server tape and send off to Iron Mountain.
If there were problems with any equipment, I would then call and set up a service to resolve any issues within a – more... very short amount of time.
Once that was completed, I would then fill any common areas with general office supplies.
I then checked all conference rooms and libraries to make sure they were ready for the upcoming day’s lunch meetings or inter-office meetings.
I was the first point of contact when we had clients and other employees from other offices throughout. I would essentially serve as their on-call administrative assistant for that day or however long there were working out of the Boston Office.
That consisted editing and binding documents, preparing invoices, setting up catered lunches, offsite meetings, researching potential and current clients/companies and the typical support an administrative provides for any upper level management that required assistance while visiting the Boston Offices.
From that point, I then reviewed all emails and following up with each of the Directors I supported to go over the upcoming days work.
That included scheduled meetings, travel, expenses, editing presentation, binding, shipping, filing, data entry, project research, scheduling upcoming conferences.
Worked closely with major hotels in the area to view the space, discuss set up, food choices, etc. when we had meetings that our Boston Office could not accommodate hosting due to the number of attendees.
I frequently worked with our IT department based out of the Toronto Office to fix any minor issues with employee’s laptops. This was a daily problem. I certainly learned a lot on how to troubleshoot computers for minor issues.
I worked closely with my office manager arranging office parties and fun activities to boost morale in the office. Often we would order food and have game night, which was always a favorite of everybody’s. If the office manager or the other administrative assistant was working from another location or either was on vacation or sick I served as a back-up admin support to the executives they supported.
We also did quite a bit of charity work while employed at Navigant. It is a wonderful feeling to be able to give back to those who deserve it!
While taking care of my priorities first, I did provide admin backup to all of the consultants and senior consultants when needed. That was pretty much on a daily basis.
As for my co-workers, they were greatest group of people anybody could ask to work with. It was truly an honor and a privilege to work with each one of them from Managing Directors down the consultants.
Everyday was an enjoyable day at work. It is a bit tough to pick out one particular scenario when you are lucky to enough to have worked with such wonderful people. I enjoyed nothing more than getting up and going to work everyday! – less
