Pros

Very flexible work environment. Good compensation.

Cons

If you are not in Seattle/Redmond/Bellevue, WA you have no long term prospects for growing your marketing career beyond a Senior Manager position. Eventually, you will be paid at the high-end of what is allocated for your career band and then you will be managed out, regardless of your performance.

Advice to Management

Clearly define field marketing positions as such and hard-line these roles back into the Sales organizations that they serve.

    Pros

    The job is fun. Who doesn't want to play with technology all day? Better than average pay. Lots of opportunity to grow for the right individuals but may require relocation.

    Cons

    Typical retail expectations and scheduling. Limited growth at specific locations. Too many false promises of advancement to individuals who may not be qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the fun and be truthful with overzealous employees about advancement opportunities.
