Do you ever wonder if you’re the only one who clocks 10-hour workdays, or spends two hours a day on email?

Or who eats lunch at his desk?

Rest assured: you’re not.

AtTask and Marketing Profs recently conducted a survey of 795 marketers to learn how they spend their workdays, and compiled the results in an infographic.

According to the infographic, 37 percent of marketers spend one to two hours a day on email, and 36 percent spend a whopping three to four hours on email. That’s almost half the workday. (Unless you’re part of the 23 percent who clock 10-plus-hour days. If that’s you, we’re sorry.)

Do you typically eat lunch at your desk? You’re not alone there, either. More than half (56 percent) of marketers eat their midday meal at their desks. A mere 7 percent dine out.

To see how the rest of your workday compares to that of your peers, check out the infographic:
