Career advice: What are the pros and cons of a career in finance vs one in marketing?

First, don't feel like you have to go back to finance because it was your original plan. Careers are not linear. Life takes us in twists and turns, which makes it more fun.
 
The path to success goes through places and experiences we did not foresee. I would say most successful people end up practicing a career that is quite different than whatever was their original plan when they signed up for college.
 
I don't think you can say finance is more technical -m there are aspects of marketing that are very technical. You are probably correct in that it is more layoff friendly: it is a more stable job. Marketing is more dynamic, but I see that as a good thing. You may get laid off or right-sized in marketing but if you are good you should also be able to find another job faster.
 
Keep in mind Marketing has evolved to be a collection of competencies, it is not a career. The job and daily tasks for marketers in analyst relations, social media marketing, SEO , campaign management and technical product marketing are very, very different.
