"Laid Back, Fun Job as Social Media Manager."
Social Media Manager:
Pros: My office is extremely laid back - causal clothing, music blasting, ping pong table and video games in the break room, nerf-gun wars break out occasionally, the atmosphere is great.
Cons: As a social media manager, my job can be a bit monotonous. There is no end goal - no problem to solve - just constantly updating and providing content for the community. This can be hard to deal with as a person who enjoys having spelled-out, specific goals.

Social Media Manager:
Pros: It suits my personality type.
Cons: Its not challenging enough.
April 2015
"It's more than Facebook status updates."
Social Media Manager:
Pros: Opportunity to learn new technology and an ever changing communications landscape to keep interest and innovation levels high.
Cons: Everyone is an expert because they once posted a Facebook status update that got 50 likes. Management mistakenly think they understand the job despite having zero knowledge or experience and as a result, you end up being project managed by someone who doesn't know what you do.
May 2015
"Fantastic work flexibility, ability to use creativity."
Social Media Manager:
Pros: I really enjoy that I get to flex my creative muscles for a strategic purpose. The best part of working in a higher ed social media capacity is getting to be involved in a thriving academic environment. There are so many stories to be told on a college campus, and different audiences to work with. The days are never the same, and I really appreciate that.
Cons: Bureaucracy can make doing things that are considered ground breaking or creative difficult. Endless meetings.
