    I worked at The Business Year full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very good experience on the management and clients side as well. We are sent to countries where we run our own mini companies with full responsibilities on searching the market, organising our team and tasks and meeting with la creme de la creme from CEOs to government officials. I had a great relation with the management who is not with you on a daily basis. We do weekly meeting and if you are a good ethical worker the job is fit for you. In this industry we work hard but we play hard too and we live in very nice places all around the world, immersing ourselves in new cultures and ways of life. You can only become stronger from such experience, being a manager at a young age. All the industry people are still my friends today. Awesome management parties once a year in Istanbul, fancy life style.

    Cons

    Moving from one country to another with climate differences.

    Advice to Management

    remember the days you were in the field and doing what we do now.
