    Pros

    Great experience in the sales rep industry. Fun working for Motorola and plenty of goodies to win for sales goals.

    Cons

    Upper management of BDS not always completely transparent with vendor partners. Was told many times by BDS management that what was being discussed with them didn't need to be discussed with our vendor team managers. Kinda shady.

    No management breathing down neck. No sales quotas.

    I worked at BDS Marketing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company itself does have some good programs, I worked on one that I actually enjoyed.

    Cons

    The salary is low for expectations, they often change bonus structure in the middle of the month/quarter making them unattainable, the program I worked on extremely micromanaged and spent way too much time on conference calls and too many steps to complete simple things like buy a manager lunch or set up a training event.

    Advice to Management

    Stream line processes hire people you can trust so you don't have to micro manage and pay them better so they will want to do their job.
