How do you handle a CD that overrides everything to do with web/UX/UI for their own opinions and tastes? A few months ago the same CD admitted to having no new web knowledge since the mid 90's...
My team and I have provided research/data backed design choices but our CD could care less. We present our ideas in a respectful manner but it seems he interprets it as a threat to his authority. It makes for a frustrating work environment and our products aren't nearly as successful as they could be.

My partner has, for the last 3 years, been the co-head of a business unit within an investment bank. Six months ago, the role of sole head of the business unit was advertised, interviews took place and after a lengthy process, the decision has been made to appointed my partner as the head, but no change the job grade!

Hi everyone! Who started this bowl? 🤔 Curious what industries are represented by all of us here.
Hello Amazing people,
I am going to support a partner in my company on top of the CEO/Founder and COO. He never had an EA before… He doesn’t know how I can help him. He asked me to think of ideas to brainstorm together. I am pretty new in the company (2 months) and I do not fully understand all the sides of his role as I was focused on my CEO and COO. He mainly work on our company marketing and branding.
We have a first 1-1 tomorrow and I am trying to think of on thought provoking questions.
Can anyone provide inside feedback on the Executive Administrative Partner roles at Meta (Facebook)? Daily work load, average comp for 5+ years experience….
Hi everyone, quick question: is there a bowl where we can post job opportunities within our firm? This is for a Fintech company. We are looking to get more women to apply and I'm trying to figure out more places where we can spread the word. Thank you :)
Happy Administrative Appreciation Day to all!
I got notice everything at the new firm is good to go. Now to give notice. I’m dreading it. I really really like my boss but this opportunity is too good to pass up. How do you even start? I’ve been in this role 8 years. How to give notice?? Yikes! I’m giving about 2 1/2 weeks notice. 10/17 start date. Any help is appreciated!!!

Hi everyone! I started a new EA job a week ago and am being asked to add some spizazz to the office (~50 people) I’m thinking of sending out a survey form for suggestions but would also like to present some ideas beforehand…I’m very utilitarian myself so decor is very out of my zone of genius and I don’t have a good idea of what the team likes yet etc but maybe you guys can help me out with some ideas? Was thinking of some kind of wellness or fun corner…
Thanks in advance!

Want to improve my verbal and written communication skills. I hear reading more would help but I don’t read as much as I used to. So I’m wondering what books would help with that?
