My assignment overseas was the highlight of my career.
Pros: excellent symposia, trade shows and recognition for exceeding sales objectives.
Cons: nothing of great importance.
Unfortunately, there is a "one size (or model that)fits all" sales mentality that can handicap/frustrate those selling to large, global accounts. Further, although they do have some remarkable folks in senior management they do have an unfortunate history of putting the wrong folks into the wrong jobs.
