Marketing Communications Specialist Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Marketing Communications Specialist?

Marketing Communications Specialist in Schaumburg:
"Close to many things."
Pros: central location
Cons: my commute from home

Marketing Communications Specialist:
Becoming one of the worst employers in SEWi. Short-sighted management, chasing shareholder value with archaic cost saving methods, such as letting go as many 50+ aged employees as they can get away with. No investment in technology. Fed-up dealer network.

Marketing Communications Specialist in Houston:
Pros: Great city with many different industry opportunities. The economy is always better here than in other states.
Cons: Commutes may be long depending on where you live. My commute from the suburbs to the inner city takes about 1 or 2 hours in the morning, depending on traffic.

Marketing Communications Specialist in Lake Forest:
"Working in Lake Forest."
Pros: The pro's of working in Lake Forest in our business park are the ease of access to the highway, semi-close places for lunch, and bus shuttle to the train.
Cons: The con's of working in Lake Forest are that if you're new to this area or if you've moved for the job, living in Chicago isn't the easiest option.

Marketing Communications Specialist in Indianapolis:
Pros: Good company with great people helping you succeed in your career in any way they can help with.
Cons:

Marketing Communications Specialist in Seattle:
"Confidence Is Amazing."
Believing in yourself and what you're doing will allow you to reach the next level. Any doubts you have in your abilities will only hold you back. Take the time to evaluate who you are and what you know and continue to learn and grow. I always feared being wrong, that will most likely happen. It's how you fix it and move on that usually becomes more valuable.

Marketing Communications Specialist in Plano:
Pros: Creative freedom, ability to explore social platforms, coworkers, work flexibility.
Cons: Not the latest technology, not much coworker engagement, stress level.
