Marketing Communications Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Marketing Communications Manager?
Marketing Communications Manager in Newark:
"It's A Direct Communication Between Business And Referrals."
Pros: Everything, love that I work in the field so I can directly effect outcomes but I am critical in this piece of the business as well.
Cons: Being pulled too many ways constantly, coordination of efforts and ideas. Lack of organization is challenging.
Marketing Communications Manager in Houston:
"Extreme Boredom Highlighted By Extremely Intense Days."
Pros: I like that its a small company and that I know everyone and there's not a lot of corporate bureaucracy. I like that we have casual attire and have half days on Friday. I like that I get to travel on the company dime and I get to spend sometime away from my desk.
Cons: I don't like that I'm the only person in my department. I don't like that my boss is a horrible micro manager sometimes and other times could careless. I don't like that I'm put in awkward situations between what the CEO is telling me to do and what I know we should, he's a part owner of the company. I don't like that I'm required to set up displays at conferences when no one else that actually works the show has to do that.
