    I worked at BDS Marketing part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Getting to work with new devices
    - Being able to work by yourself
    - Meeting new people at all the stores you visit

    Cons

    - They do not pay you what you think you're going to get
    - 35 cents a mile doesnt cover anything
    - YOU ARE NEVER OFF EVER; they will call and text 24/7 literally
    - You should magically know when things change when you're out in the field going to stores and they change the entire plan of everything
    - Stores hate that you have to show up so often and you run out of things to teach so it becomes like you're a fly in their store just irritating them because you have to be there for an hour
    - They make up their own mileage, not what you drive on real roads but what you could fly if you had a plane and could just hop store to store ( I went 36 miles but was paid for 16)
    - Communication in a cellular device job is worse then any company I've ever been with
    - Your told your stores will be 50 miles within your town, they aren't and if you dont visit those stores in distant lands you get in trouble, but they aren't going to pay you for it so why go
    - You buy everything you need, Polo, Lanyard, Bis Cards Ect.....
    - Most of the morning team calls your lost in because part time employees aren't told anything and do not get the same resources FT have
    - Terrible Job would never do it again, last week 3 people quit the same day in my hiring group and I'm sure there's more to come
    Motorola should rethink who theyre paying to represent their brand.

    I worked at BDS Marketing full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of the pros, the company (did) have decent benefits; throw nice parties; casual work environment and dress nice building

    Cons

    The company is very unstable and not just because of the economy. Reorganization of department, staff and in general is not uncommon. There tends to be an exclusive club like group/click that goes on primarily with upper management and if you are lucky and or suck up enough you get in and or invited to things that only a few get invited to. Also upper management, specifically in the finance department, tends to talk to their subordinates about other subordinates within their department/team which is really disrespectful and pathetic.
