Megafirms in the AmLaw 100 are well-known for having well-staffed marketing departments.  In fact the size ranges up to 113 people at one firm, according to Wisnik Career Enterprises, Inc. in a new factsheet the company released at the recent Marketing Partner Forum.

  • Chief: 3.76 years
  • Director: 3.66 years
  • Manager 3.14 years
  • Specialist: 2.75 years
  • Coordinator: 2.79 years
  • Assistant 2.15 years
