    I have been working at BMW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They genuinely care about you and what you bring to the table. They always want to invest in employees and help them grow and achieve their career goals. They take the time to help develop the employee to help ensure success. Very encouraging work environment.

    Cons

    I do not have much to say; overall the company is excellent to work for. However, I would say they sometimes give unrealistic deal lines.

  3. "Great choice for a career."

    I worked at BMW full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    That would be to make that first sale and first transaction and feel something that I have never felt before a roaring engine with over 1200horsepower engines and not only convincing my customers that's not what want it's what they need!!!

    Cons

    The only con I have is not being able to work at BMW to sell Exotic vehicles and put a smile on my own face for being a part of a family that is so strong in their system!!!

    Advice to Management

    When there's no where to go and you hit rock bottom your in so much pain but it's amazing to know when you receive a light in your eyes and see the blessings you truly have then and there you realize theres more hope to achieve dreams you did not believe that are or ever were possible and you cease the day that's the only advice I can give to my manager!

    Pros

    Co workers, make the misery of coming to work better. You are treated as a number not a person. Modern day slavery.

    Cons

    You work like you're a slave. They've taken away almost every perk that they originally had. Bmw does not care about you, they care about themselves. Very greedy company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the good ole boy system and let the Germans run the company
