Q: What is it like working as a Marketing Manager?
"High Level of Responsibility."
Pros: A great deal of responsibility and high-level decision making.
Cons: Working "in the weeds" at times and not having enough time to strategize and plan correctly.
"Love the Challenge."
Pros: I love this job because there is always a new puzzle to solve every week. I love challenges and figuring out new ways to do things, so this job is perfect in that sense. My team is solid and one of the highest functioning teams at the company because we all have the same goals. I also love the fact that I regularly speak with the CEO and answer only to the CEO of the company. It takes a lot of the bureaucracy out of it that you usually see in most companies.
Cons: If I could change one thing, it would be the corporate culture. There are people within the office that make it very unpleasant to work there because they are constantly trying to implement policies that limit communication or add extra layers to approvals. This makes things difficult for me because this person is not in my direct chain of command but she does have a lot of pull within the office, so I must respect her position. She is a good ally to have but she can be very stressful to deal with. The other thing I would change is how the CEO dishes out his negative feedback. When the mood strikes him, he will go after you like a terrier with a juicy bone. He usually regrets it and tries to work with you to improve the areas that you need help with, though.
Pros: Learned official language plus corporate. Marketing skills.
Cons: No salary increase. No colleges educated.
"Challenging, learning, trialling and rewarding."
Pros: I like the challenge of having many responsibilities including researching new markets and ways to target them. I'm constantly learning about and trying new marketing techniques and evaluating the success.
Cons: The marketing manager position was new when I started without clear and defined responsibilities so these responsibilities have changed and broadened without clear direction. The description is still not defined so I take on many marketing, business development and sales tasks. These include marketing strategies, business analysis, production and sales documentation, brand development, organizing trade shows, attending trade shows, develop marketing collateral and promotional material distribution.
"Do better than male counterparts."
Ensure you shine above male counterparts.

"Keep up to date and innovate!"
The key to success in any field is remaining relevant in your profession and this means every day allocating time to identifying the hot topics and issues of your profession and your chosen sector. Much of what I learned in University was theory based and didn't really prepare me for the reality of organisational environments, their structures, systems and methods of measuring success and productivity.
