Mathematics, General:
Mathematics is a challenging field, but a very rewarding field. As a math major, you need to have facility with numbers and numerical concepts, but also patience and good problem solving skills. I work now in software development, and the process of developing a mathematical proof is very similar to the process of developing software, at least at an intellectual level. There are many career opportunities in mathematics, in academia, the hard sciences, the social sciences, and in finance. The one negative I always mention is that it is near impossible to explain what mathematics is about to a nonmath major.

Mathematics, General:
Mathematics isn't for everyone, but is very intellectually rewarding. Unlike a lot of majors, there are truly right and wrong answers in mathematics, without a lot of ambiguity. It requires logical thought, patience, and creativity. I work now in computer programming, and the exercise of creating a mathematical proof is very similar to developing a computer program. Beyond computer work, there is mathematicians have opportunities in social sciences, hard science, and finance. The only negative is that it is often impossible to explain what the major is about to a nonmajor.
