    I worked at GDS Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for GDS Group and going through their extensive training and development process, has strengthened my C-level conversation when it comes to Digital Transformation and disruption. GDS is the forefront of knowledge when it comes to technology and data. I resided under CIO and Data Team which was a very detailed and strong team . If you are looking to strengthen your consultative selling skills and make great money. Reach out to their recruitment department. Great benefits and great atmosphere to work in.

    Cons

    Cons are not all work environments are as flexible as you need them to be. However if you become a part of the GDS Family make sure you are punctual and have your schedules in order. They do not tolerate being late. However this is the making of a well rounded sales person.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to give yourself advise. This is your business you are your own manager. The POD leaders give you the tools and path to strengthen your pitch and linguistics.
