Pros: excellent healthcare, car allowance, and expense account
A typical day might include a bit of all things sales and marketing, including creating presentation and launch material for a new product offering, planning for trade show travel and display ans assisting field sales people. Additional duties could include distribution, channel management, and pipeline forecasting.
My immediate supervisor made the experience enjoyable by providing latitude and freedom for developing tools, techniques, and strategies for assisting channel partners and field salespeople.
Perhaps the only difficult part of the job is being asked to create management reports with having little or not data available. Sales and data information was irregular, inconsistent, and made it difficult to provide accurate reporting.
