"Key Account Management, New Business, Targets"

November 2013
"Not a good proposition with Frost & Sullivan"
Business Development Manager:
Pros: I get to learn a lot about the business climate in India and other Asian countries. Faced to challenges in terms of compensation and sales commission from the employer. And in terms of getting business from Indian clients. And to top it all, face the internal politics in the company. Combined, all these make my learning very strong.
Cons: The job is interesting, but it is the package that is far below the industry standard and is making one feel very less enthusiastic about this job. There are lot of variations in the payscale in the company, and I am paid much below the salary of a typical manager in business development role. The company gives commission after one year, it is pathetic case and makes one lack the trust in his place of work.
