Current Employee - Marketing Manager  in  Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

Pros

Learn a huge amount, given great degree of freedom to find your own solutions and drive for results.
There are so many different technical solutions n the company portfolio and different routes to market that you can move around the organisation and get new experiences.
The work environment is high energy, results focussed and fast paced. Its quite exciting at times and stimulates innovation.

Cons

Painful amount of politics & playing the game. At times the internal competition is ferocious as colleagues seek to promote themselves.
Workloads are not managed effectively - you are set goals and often the 'how to' is not clear resulting in a totally unmanageable workload.
There is an overdependence on email which can lead to hundreds of mails that could take over your schedule.

Advice to ManagementAdvice
