Business Development Assistants aren't exactly in the most profitable line of business; these folks earn a belt-tightening average of $40K per year. Geographic location and years of experience each impact pay for this group, with the former having the largest influence. Health benefits are not enjoyed by everyone in this line of work, and just under a fourth lack any coverage at all. Medical benefits are reported by a fair number and dental coverage is claimed by a majority. For the most part, Business Development Assistants enjoy their work and report high levels of job satisfaction. Men are in the minority of survey respondents, with female Business Development Assistants making up 77 percent. The figures in this rundown are based on the results of PayScale's salary questionnaire.
