What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Marketing & Business Development Manager in Hamilton:
"Highly demanding, not a 9-5 job, pay is not on par."
Ensure you are aware of the responsibilities that will be placed on you and you go in with the right salary. I have been fighting to get to a fair scale and feel discouraged with the result 7 years later.
What is it like working as a Marketing & Business Development Manager?
Marketing & Business Development Manager in Windsor:
"Fast Paced Life."
Pros: I enjoy that my job is always at a fast pace. My job requires me to be extremely organized and forces me to work in a very time sensitive manner. These 2 major requirements leave little down time and I enjoy that. I enjoy coming to work knowing that I can always do something different, try something new, to create a better end result.
Cons: If I had to choose the least "favorite" thing about my position it would be the lack of organization and effort my team sometimes brings to the table. In my position, it is constantly keeping me working harder and harder, to generate more sales - but if the Sales Professionals aren't doing their part, we are all sort on bonus pay for the month.
