    The area is pretty average now, in a lot of ways -- pay, housing, other costs -- and I hear it's something of a test market for, well, marketers. When the sun is out, which is often even in the winter, it looks beautiful. East-west traffic is becoming a problem (there are no freeways).

    I applied for this job when it was open about 2-4 years ago (can't remember exactly when), so those applying might want to inquire what became of the person who eventually got the job (moved up in the company or moved on).

    Springs is quite affordable. And, yes, it's gorgeous down there.
