What is it like working as a Marketing Manager?
Marketing Manager in Bountiful:
"Never bored in Marketing."
Pros: Having a hand in every part of the marketing mix of this little company. Responsibility over so much early in my career.
Cons: Because of the small size of this company I have responsibility over many little pieces that can at some point or another get pushed to the side or forgotten unless each is documented in detail which is so time consuming it almost is always worth it.
Marketing Manager in Minneapolis:
"Trying to stay patient."
Pros: I really enjoy working in the sports and specifically basketball industry. I feel like I have autonomy and genuinely am invested in the company as a whole.
Cons: I feel like the expectations of me are extremely high. I never quite feel like I'm doing enough even though I'm working extremely hard. I know that there are others with less experience, less work-ethic, and less responsibilities that are making more money than me and I don't feel like that's fair.

Pros: I have a high degree of autonomy in deciding how to market things and how to set up the tasting room.
Cons: I dislike that I am not given more responsibility such as scheduling, hiring, firing, etc.
Marketing Manager in Worcester:
"Busy, lots to cover and manage at once."
Pros: Freedom of creativity and ability to do as I see fit to benefit our growth. Being a part of a phenomenal team that works very well together in upper management.
Cons: Learning as I go. Not being certain that the decisions I make will be the "right" decisions for the company.
Marketing Manager in Boise:
Pros: I love the flexibility I have and the ability to manage my own projects. I have very little guidance.
