I'm a legal assistant at a personal injury/family law firm. I am the only one. I have no training and am constantly berated for not being able to read everyone's mind. My bosses treat their business like their own personal ATMs; they are husband and wife. I don't mind the actual work, but these people treat everyone horribly. It's not until I worked for them that I realized just how much of an impact your boss and coworkers can have on job satisfaction.
If you're ever considering working at a small business, you really, really need to be sure that the people who work there aren't total jackasses first, because unlike working for a large company, you won't have anyone to commiserate with and no way of addressing abuses.
