Non-competes are fairly standard clauses in sales/marketing. Usually it's for 1 year, although I've heard of some as long as 5 years. They're tremendously difficult to enforce since there's a lot of legal precedent that a company can't prevent a person from earning a living so it comes down to a legal mud-fest over how direct the competition actually is, with all emotional baggage of a "massive corporation expending millions to squash a single poor soul". Usually, it's more of a scare tactic than anything, and often aimed at the new employer more than the employee.
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
