    I worked at Buckhead Business Consulting as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Business Account Consultant position is perfect for someone who is self-motivated and driven. The training is never-ending and the culture is young and energetic. The business plan at BBC Inc allows you to grow within the company as a direct result of your performance. Hard work is rewarded well and other consultants are always willing to help when needed.

    Cons

    This position is not for everyone. You have to be willing to work and put in hours required at any commission-based sales position. If you are wanting to punch the clock at 9 - 5 job, this probably isn't for you.

    Not a job for those looking just to collect a pay check. It's real work and only for those how want to go somewhere with it.

    I worked at Buckhead Business Consulting full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They will hire pretty much whoever that walks in to interview. If you are into "b2b" (door to door cold calling on random offices) this is your place.

    Cons

    You are expected to work on out of town road trips where you are expected to split beds with people.. No gas or millage compensation. Make sure you have enough money saved before you start this job, because you won't get a check for a month, and the job takes money. There are "optional" team nights twice a week where you have to go spend money and hangout with your co-workers. Meh.. Expect to work 60-70 hours a week and to be out of town one or two weeks a month.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more transparent about the job.

    I have been working at Buckhead Business Consulting full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The management team shows a true interest in the developement and success of the employees. I have been given the chance to achieve all of my goals and have been pushed to accomplish more. Having a manager like Sarah that is willing to put in the time and effort to get to know her employees both personally and professionally so that she can push us to a new level is something that is not available in most careers.

    Cons

    The con with this position is what makes it so special. Everything is earned. Everyone has the same exact opurtunity no matter the background they come from or the experience the have.

    I worked at Buckhead Business Consulting

    Pros

    I have worked a lot of jobs that provided unsatisfactory training, however this job provides paid training that covers all you need to know to be successful. Upper management truly cares about the people in their office and their success. They reward the hard workers. The work environment is fun. The opportunity to advance and advance fast is 100% accurate.

    Cons

    If you don't work hard, your opportunity to advance quickly dwindles. Also, you don't get to see your co-workers enough.

    Pros

    Working at Buckhead Business Consulting has been one of the best decisions I have made. I have not only grown professionally, but also personally. I am constantly being pushed outside my comfort zone. The team environment allows for a healthy competition amongst my peers, while also having mentors that actually care about me and my progress. I'm excited to see where this year is going to take us!

    Cons

    This is a merit based company. Opportunity must be earned. I have to put 100% in to get the results that I want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep challenging me!

    I have been working at Buckhead Business Consulting full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I've been with Buckhead Business Consulting for 2 years now. Some of the great things about this company is the experince I have gained and how much I have learned from when I first started. There is definitely a lot of hands on training from day 1 and as someone continues to advance through out the company. This job pushes you outside your comfort zone which has helped me grow not only professionaly but also in my personal life. This job has helped me with organization, public speaking, training, developing others, and so many other skills! Also the management team is best!!!! The managing partners are amazing And I appreciate everything they have done for me. They have coached and guided me to help me advance in my career

    Cons

    If you are lazy... Don't apply!

    Pros

    The people you work with generally care about your progress. The company you rep is one of the best in its field. If you have a strong work ethic you can be very successful. This is 100% cold call industry. If you like meeting new people this job can be relatively easy. Morning atmosphere is a very fun and constructive way to start the day. The structure of how to be successful makes a great map for daily progress.

    Cons

    100% commission, salary is offered for a bit, but you will be moved to commission only quickly. The company you rep cares about its customers not about you. There are "bonuses" for the cost of using personal car but they might not cover the gas expenses if your territory is a 2 hour drive each way. Depending on the territory 100 miles of driving per day will be the norm. I have heard new hires be referred to as warm bodies from an Assistant Managing Partners. Zero benefits its a 1099 position with no insurance option or real benefits. There are times where you are reminded just how expendable you are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the Corporate Trainers are better leaders and more qualified than the Assistant Managing Partners.
