Alessandra Wendroff, a manager of integrated marketing at Comedy Central and Spike, is this month’s best in show. Get to know a bit more about her and life at Viacom below.

Introduce yourself – tell me a little bit about yourself, how you got started at Viacom and your interests (in both work and life).

A few weeks after I graduated college, I started my career at Viacom working as a CSR for VH1. I stayed in sales for about a year and a half and then moved into integrated marketing (IM) for the Entertainment Group, which is  where I am now. In my spare time, I love jamming to my beats (mostly rap), going spinning, and trying to keep my gummy candy addiction under control.

What’s a typical day like for you?

I enjoy getting to the office on the earlier side to get settled and prepare for the day. What I love most about IM is that there is no typical day, nothing is ever static, which always keeps everything fresh. Most of my days are filled with brainstorms with our pitch and execution team as well as creating decks and one-sheets for our sales teams, and getting snacks from The Wellness Center.

What’s the best part of your job?

I think the best part of my job is the ever-changing landscape of integrated marketing. There is always something new to learn, a new client to work with, a never-been-done-before idea to pitch. I love the people I work with, it’s great to come into the office and be excited to be part of such a great team of collaborative and creative minds.

What’s your key to success?

My key to success is to work hard and always be passionate about what you do.  In the end good things will come your way.

Where can we find you on the weekends?

You can find me hanging with my friends, going out to dinner and ordering  the most boring dish on the children’s menu (I’m a really picky eater).

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Never burn any bridges, you never know who you will be working with in the future, it is always best to just keep it professional.

If you could only use one of these platforms, which would it be: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram?

I would choose Instagram. I like how the platform isn’t filled with clutter and just focuses on photography. I love following different food Instagrams  such as DreamFood, and infatuation.

Last book you read or movie you watched?

The last book I read was Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. The last movie I watched was The Imitation Game.
