Q: What is it like working as a Marketing Coordinator?
"My Love Of Cars Brings All Things Into Play For This Job."
Pros: I love working around the high end vehicles - both Porsche and Bentley. I appreciate the training provided from all manufacturers and the dealership. I enjoy building and maintaining our websites. I have enjoyed organizing, planning and running the events for Chellingworth and through customer feedback have discovered I've done so very well. I have built great professional relationships with most staff members.
Cons: Lack of communication between some staff makes certain things difficult. Certain pressure to manage all front of house staff without proper training, I don't mind looking after the ladies and making sure there is always someone available but I haven't been trained for this.
Pros: Excellent team that works very well together. Excellent opportunities to learn new skills and grow into new positions. I am able to have a flexible schedule when needed, even working from home in bad weather. I am able to work in the office and have meetings outside of the office. My boss encourages community involvement. As a result, I have had the chance to be on local planning committees.
Cons: Corporate culture is still being defined and has lots of room for growth. Our team is trying largely to improve this area but the buy-in process is long and difficult. I have been on a freeze for a raise now for 5 years and my attempts to get a promotion have largely been thwarted by a jealous employee who is also related to the owner. I have been promised bonus's and Employee Education Reimbursement with out any follow through.
Pros: Excellent people in this office.
Cons: Underemployed. Not enough challenging work or collaboration.
"Fast Paced And Rewarding."
Pros: There is always something to keep you busy as a Marketing Coordinator in the architecture/engineering/construction industry. It's a fast-paced and rewarding position where if you give it your all, the rewards are high. It's a multi-disciplined position where you juggle many hats, including graphic designer, marketer, strategist, and coordinator.
Cons: It is extremely stressful. As a deadline-oriented position, a Marketing Coordinator is tasked with ensuring all the deadlines are met for all pursuits--from $100,000 to $50,000,000 and beyond.
I would say to be more active in projects and go away for a semester to intern for your major.
Pros: Casual Work Environment, Team Work Environment, Short Commute, Friendly Environment.
Cons: Don't feel that I am paid industry wide standard and my vast experience in general.
Pros: Great health benefits.
Cons: The down time and doing the time-consuming admin work, like scanning 500 business cards into a software. The business is extremely unorganized and against change, even if it's for the better. Employees are not trusted, especially if they are younger. Their opinions and recommendations are not taken seriously, even if there are numbers to back it up - Management goes with whatever they want to do regardless of the facts.
