Hard work doesnt pay off- business development is miserable- cold calling all day

Business Development Representative (Former Employee)
Arlington, VA

Prosthe product is very insightful, and you will work with some of the smartest people (research not sales)-- so there is an opportunity to learn alot
people that are part of the click - even if they arent performing stay for a while- so good tenured people
building is metro accessible
classroom training is good but isnt really relevant to the job- and the managers that do on the job training are not helpful or supportive

Consexpensive to park in building
very clicky caddy culture- people talk alot behind each others backs- not very supportive team- in fact the only thing that resembles a team is that you sell the same product-- people are out to get each other
managers are not supportive- very little help with learning- they treat you like you are 5
it takes ALOT longer to get promoted than they say... ALOT longer-- be prepared to wait
tedious work- same thing every day- alot of COLD calling- they count dials and post them up
culture is terrible- you dont even get to practice closing deals until you are there for what seems like forever -- even if you have been in a position where you have closed before
recruiting lies about future path

Advice to Senior Managementbe more honest in interview about what to expect. set realistic goals with employees- dont butter them up to what they want to hear- dont be so clicky

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
