      -Engage:BDR is continuously looking for ways to invest in their employees, both professionally and personally, in order to make and keep them happy -Very knowledgeable and driven colleagues who are very passionate about the industry -Everyone is very kind and helpful, definitely a teamwork environment -Great office location right off of the world famous Sunset Strip, office is beautiful with awesome views of the Hollywood Hills and city


      - Long hours, workload can get intense from time to time (the upside is that you will learn a ton in a very short amount of time) - Not many places to eat within a 10 min walk - Lots of traffic on this side of town making my commute draining – I guess that just means I need to move closer to work
