What are the best marketing departments with the best career potential

What are the best Marketing departments with the best career potential? After more than a decade with one employer, I feel like it may be time to stretch my wings and find some new challenges. I've largely built my current department, so in a way, it is limited by my own perspectives. I'd be looking for a place that's more sophisticated where I could be exposed to new techniques and tools that would allow me to grow faster than I can on my own. [more inside]

I got a new boss and my previously near-perfect job has changed significantly (in a bad way). Should I quit?

I've been at my tiny non-profit for over three years. Last summer I got a new boss who's changed the workplace from a fairly egalitarian, self-managed environment to an autocratic, micro-managed one. For instance, I used to have a modicum of creative control over the media and newsletter I produced and now I have none. Folks keep saying I should talk to her but she's very dominant and she informed me the first week she came on the job that she's a micro-manager. I'm not paid well enough to stay if I'm not enjoying myself, but I am highly invested in the people we serve and keep imagining that maybe I'll adjust and she'll chill and we'll be able to go back to "the way it was". Am I hoping against hope? Anyone been to the other side?
