Are marketing people always on the move? Not according to a survey by
Paragon Office Furniture which shows that only 44% of marketers moved
desk or office in the past two years - 4% fewer than the average.
For serious anoraks: 45% of marketers personalise their desks with
lamps, coffee mugs, photos and so on, and inside their desks, they stash
away goodies such as snacks (28%), car keys (29%), cosmetics or shaving
kit (11%), a spare pair of tights or a tie (11%) and a novel (10%). Less
surprisingly, although job satisfaction is higher than average, almost
two-thirds of marketers are dissatisfied with their pay, compared with
the national average of 56%.
There must be moral there.
