Large company with secretive top down management
Business Development Executive (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 November 2014
A typical day at work would consist of checking and sending emails,
cold and warm calls to clients, meeting both inside and out of the office, some paper work, reading up on the markets for 15 or 20 minutes and then finally some reflection on the events of the day, client meetings/calls and how to improve sales process.
The most important thing I learned here is that any organization must have internal congruency in order to function effectively.
The management took a micro style and was very secretive about internal matters. They would not give much warning before making substantial changes. Communication was ineffective with management and goals that were set by them were counter productive to revenue generation.
My Co-workers were all great and some became good friends of mine which was also the hardest part of the job when it was time to leave.
The most enjoyable part of the job was making connections.
travel experience and large brand backing
micro-managed, secretive, complicated comission structure.
