In my PR career (so far) I’ve worked with a lot of account managers (26 at last count).

I’ve worked under them as an AA or AE, alongside them as a fellow AM and I’ve managed them, as the owner of an integrated marketing agency with a heavy focus on PR. They’ve run the gamut from the appalling to the outstanding.

I decided to compile a list of ten things that an account manager can do that will exasperate the daylights out of me. I did this in the hope that eager, fresh out of PR school grads will take note, but I’m not going to lie. I also did it to vent a little.
