    I worked at BMW full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities, great management overall

    Cons

    Long hours, but worth it overall

    Advice to Management

    N/A. Give employees information and training needed. However, as a new hire there wasn't much guidance. Understandable, i wasnt expecting someone to hold my hand, but there could have been a better segway.

    Pros

    Working with clients and driving some of the best cars on the planet.
