Advertising Coordinator Reviews

Q: What is it like working as an Advertising Coordinator?

Advertising Coordinator in Cleveland:
"It never stops."
Pros: I have a high degree of responsibility for dozens of projects at a time. The satisfaction from completing those projects and keeping everything in line is immense once the final product is published.
Cons: The duties continue to pile on. There never seems to be a point where I can relax and take a breath - not that I feel I need down time at my job. However, I would like feel more evenly paced with my work flow rather than fighting back a tidal wave of projects at all times.
