Business Development Executive Reviews

What is it like working as a Business Development Executive?
Business Development Executive in Puerto Rico:
"Defining What Business We Are In."
Pros: You have to get to be creative and analytic at the same time. I have to read a lot in order to have the answers and actually develop products that are not only sellable, but profitable.
Cons: Managing projects when people have large egos is very tough because I get motivated by results, others need recognition and importance to produce. Stress is high when deadlines are close and people lack commitment, I make sure the job gets done.
