Marketing Associate Reviews

What is it like working as a Marketing Associate?
Marketing Associate in Watsonville:
"Entry Level."
Pros: It's a great way to gain experience in something with tangible skill sets. I'm learning HTML coding, inbound marketing practices, and general office etiquette.
Cons: After being promoted from Intern to Associate, I often am still viewed as the intern and as a result take a low priority. Poor communication facilitated this, combined with a poor understanding of what it is I actually do.
Marketing Associate in Freeport:
"Love It."
Pros: I get to work on projects I am passionate about and with a variety of different partners. I love the perks of working with numerous external partners. My clients have become great friends.
Cons: The work comes in ebbs and flows - sometimes it is calm and manageable, while other times it's chaotic and demanding.
