EAs (Executive Assistants) on Fishbowl
Is anyone in Chicago attending the ELS forum this week? Curious to find out what everyone hopes to get out of it.
Anyone have experience planning corporate retreats? I’ve been asked to plan one for 100 people coming from two different locations, and I have no clue what I’m doing. (Cont.)
How long have you been in the EA world and what’s the biggest change you have seen in the EA arena over your career?
I have always embraced changes but I could not shake off what I see. I missed the quality in everything we do era...now it's all about technology and so called disrutpion. Less & less quality
For someone who spent nearly 20 yr at ey and been a high performer for last 6 plus years consecutively...l am feeling less and less belonging at ey...rather feeling the pink slip is near.
How do you handle feeling like you’re letting your partners down? Messed up an airport transfer this evening and I feel awful about it. Do other EAs make mistakes?! I feel like I’m the only one.
Do you think the title EA adequately represents your role? If not, what would you change your title to and why?
Suggestions please! What mid-senior level role can EAs transition into when looking to get out of the EA role?
My position was eliminated on Monday 4 months after leaving my job in good standing. Do you suggest temporary work for a few months vs just finding that perm role? Thanks!
What's the base salary for a Senior EA at your company? I am trying to figure out this "market value" bit.
Followed my partner to new company and out of EA role and after less then a year I would like to find an EA role again. Any suggestions?
What kind of flexibility does your company offer? Ours offers one work from home day per quarter, which seems absolutely ridiculous
