I use the Outline palette, available under the Windows menu.  You get to see the names of all the objects on all the pages and in all the groups, in a tree structure.  You can also rename objects in the Outline palette, and see their level relationships, which is helpful when changing an object's level on a page.  (A bug however prevents some objects from moving one level at a time, either through menu command or keyboard shortcut.  Move to Top and Move to Bottom work, but Move Up and Move Down don't always work.)
