You get to experience a lot of new things before anyone else.
Having to constantly come up with new campaigns for new clients, some of which are competitors, trains your brain to be constantly creative.
Money rules the world and no matter how much of a forward thinking hippy you are, companies will ALWAYS need to promote themselves, so as long as you've got a job in marketing, you'll always have a job in marketing.
Clients are never right and generally speaking they have no fucking idea what they want or what they're talking about. So you can come up with some utterly crap low grade campaign or artwork with no effort and they will absolutely LOVE it.
The money is good. Whether your a social media manager or an account director or creative director, that hefty paycheck at the end of the month fills the gap in your soulless heart.
You know how to market yourself and make a personal brand.
People never believe you when you say you like something because they think it's one of your clients. Friends will also incessantly call you a sell out, man.
You've basically sold your soul to corporations to captalise on ad infinitum, only adding more 1s and 0s to the matrix we live in.
Usually people who work in marketing have some sort of artistic talent whether it be graphic design, music, writing or film, you may think you can balance the two but with the long hours and constant pressure you can pretty much say goodbye to those dreams.
