Typical day spent in team meetings, research, forecast, & sales support.
As a marketer, responsibilities include upstream and Downstream marketing efforts, which it is a big plus.
One of the challenges with the job is with sales support. Many of the tasks are requests for information which are readily available to the sales staff. This is disreptive and not an efficient use of company resources.
The biggest challenge is with regards to meetings with executive staff, in which the stated topic is not discussed and you may be quizzed on totally unrelated items.
The co-workwers in the department are pleasant to work with and generally willing to help.
There is a history of bonus programs not being honored, even though goals are met. Many employees who have been there for years just say they don't expect them, even when they are presented.
