    I have been working at BBS, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have been working at BBS for almost 8 months now and still enjoy coming into the office everyday. BBS has a tremendous amount of room for advancement and is a growing sales and marketing firm. I have personally had 2 promotions within the past 8 months and have seen multiple promotions also- The hiring managers Vince and Tray, have a 'no seniority' policy which means, if you are out performing others, you get the next promotion. Other perks - Travel, Competitive base salary, leads are given (No cold calling) High commissions, full health benefits and 50% of gas is paid The managers encourage any type of feedback and encourage all employees to write reviews on Glassdoor.

    Cons

    Managers hold high standards. This isn't a complete con but if your numbers start to drop, they will sit you down and have a critical conversation on how to improve. If you don't hit BBS standards, they let people go within 3 weeks. (Not a position for lazy)

    I have been working at BBS, Inc. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Positive, optimistic work environment. Very driven employees who are always willing to help. Your future is literally in your hands with great opportunities for advancement and team management. I came from a food/beverage background with little 'real world' experience. The managers at BBS give phenomenal training and coaching on a daily basis. Like any company, management is only good as its team. Fast-paced and high energy work environment is needed in a direct sales & marketing firm. I was promoted from a Entry level position to Corporate trainer within 4 weeks and promoted to Assistant Manager within 8 months from date of hire. Promotions are 100% guaranteed if you hit the standards. Absolutely no seniority or favoritism. Just be willing to work hard and grind!

    Cons

    100% performance based company. Unlike 'corporate' companies, you get pulled up from upper management for a promotion, at BBS you must hit standards to reach promotions. So you PUSH yourself up. Everything is FACE to FACE. From interviews, to sales calls. The marketing industry is strictly going to SEO type of marketing or face to face. Billboards, newspapers, tele-marketing, TV commercials (because of Hulu and Netflix) are a dying breed. BBS represents strictly Fortune 100 companies who can handle the SEO side of marketing but they can't handle all the small/medium size business and customers in the market. If you are looking for your typical 9-5, sit behind a desk and collect a paycheck, this is not a career for you. DO NOT APPLY. If you aren't willing to put in longer hours like most serious careers (Lawyers, Doctors, High level executives) Do NOT APPLY. BBS is ranked a Top Places To Work for the past 4 years and Best Places To Work for the past 2 years for a reason....They are one of the fastest growing companies in the country. In order to grow, you need to hire like crazy...UNFORTUNATELY, being ranked the #1 company for MILLENNIALS to work at, you get a lot of young, 'self-entitled', lazy kids who expect to only work 40hours and get paid $100k/yr. NOT HAPPENING HERE!

    I worked at BBS, Inc.

    Pros

    It is a very energetic environment, almost like being a camp counselor, don't need to keep track of your steps

    Cons

    Long hours, compensation depends almost entirely upon luck, not the job if you have any knee or ankle problems
