AR jobs

Looks like the AR jobs market is in full swing. There's been a lot of movement recently in EMEA, including at CA, Avaya, IBM, CSC, Marconi, Oracle, Unisys, etc...

And looking at the links on the left hand sidebar, there are a few positions advertised at major vendors:

Sr. Manager, Analyst Relations - US LeadMclean, VA - BearingPoint
Analyst Relations ManagerRedmond, WA - Microsoft
Vice President, Analyst Relations &San Jose, CA - BEA Systems
Vendor Relations SpecialistUS - Gartner

And also one to join the Gartner vendor relations:
Director, Marketing Communications andSan Francisco, CA

This Borg vendor police job description makes an interesting read:

This position will be responsible for ensuring the Gartner brand is protected in the marketplace and is presented to reflect independence and objectivity at all times. This is achieved by receiving; reviewing and approving all formats (press releases, presentations, brochures, etc) by which vendors will attempt use Gartner research externally.

Confrontational?

Why confrontational? If every other tech company would use your brand left and right, wouldn't you want someone to look over your brand and how it is used elsewhere?

No answer necessary.
